Abstract:
Berkeley Design Automation, Inc., provider of the world's fastest nanometer circuit verification, today announced that Episil Technology, Inc., a pure-play foundry house specializing in epitaxial and silicon wafer foundry services for power and analog semiconductor products, has selected the company's AFS Nano SPICE simulator for analog and power device characterization.

Episil Selects Berkeley Design Automation AFS Nano for Analog and Power Semiconductor Devices: Delivers Nanometer SPICE accuracy and >10x Price/Performance for Analog Circuits

Santa Clara, CA | Posted on November 8th, 2012

"Having a cost effective circuit simulator that delivers the required accuracy and performance is a critical component of a competitive characterization strategy," said Phoenix Deng, CAD Dept. Manager, Technology Development Division, R&D & Operation Support Center, at Episil. "AFS Nano delivers block-level simulation with nanometer SPICE accuracy and >10x price/performance for our analog and power devices. This makes it compelling even compared to traditional SPICE tools."

The Analog FastSPICE Platform provides the world's fastest circuit verification for nanometer analog, RF, mixed-signal, and custom digital circuits. Foundry certified to 20nm, the AFS Platform delivers nanometer SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster on a single core and >2x faster on multicore systems versus any other simulator. For circuit characterization, the AFS Platform includes the industry's only comprehensive silicon-accurate device noise analysis and delivers near-linear performance scaling with the number of cores. For large circuits, it delivers >10M-element capacity, the fastest near-SPICE-accurate simulation, and the fastest, most accurate mixed-signal simulation. Available licenses include AFS circuit simulation, AFS Transient Noise Analysis, AFS RF Analysis, AFS Co-Simulation, and AFS Nano SPICE.

"We are excited that Episil Technology selected AFS Nano for verification of their analog and power devices," said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. "Episil's selection of AFS Nano further validates the strong competitive advantage and price/performance benefits the Analog FastSPICE Platform provides to the semiconductor ecosystem."
