Tools Deliver True SPICE Accuracy 5x-10x Faster for Complex Analog/Mixed-Signal Circuits
SANTA CLARA, Calif : Berkeley Design Automation Inc., provider of the Analog FastSPICE™ unified circuit verification platform for advanced analog and RF integrated circuits (ICs), today announced that MIPS Technologies, Inc. (NasdaqGS: MIPS - News), a leading provider of industry-standard architectures, processors and analog IP, has selected the company's Analog FastSPICE™ unified verification platform including the AFS Nano SPICE simulator for analog/mixed-signal IP verification and characterization.
"MIPS Technologies is the leader in analog/mixed-signal IP targeted for advanced connectivity, audio, data conversion, RF and wireless communications, and power management,” said Cesar Martin-Perez, Vice President and General Manager, Analog Business Group, MIPS Technologies. “Our analog/mixed-signal IP design flow requires stringent verification and characterization. Analog FastSPICE provides us true SPICE accurate results significantly faster than traditional SPICE. With this faster turnaround time, our design teams can work much more efficiently, and rigorously characterize even our most complex circuits.”
Analog FastSPICE is the industry’s only unified circuit verification platform for analog, mixed-signal, and RF design. Always delivering true SPICE accurate results, it provides 5x-10x higher performance than traditional SPICE, >1 million-element capacity, and the industry’s only comprehensive noise analysis. The AFS Platform is a single executable that uses advanced algorithms and numerical analysis to rapidly solve the full-circuit matrix and original device equations without any shortcuts. AFS Platform tools include: AFS Nano SPICE simulator, Analog FastSPICE circuit simulator, Noise Analysis Option™ device noise analyzer, and RF FastSPICE™ multi-tone periodic analyzer.
"We are excited that MIPS Technologies selected Analog FastSPICE for their analog/mixed-signal IP verification flow," said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. "Delivering an advanced and extensive analog/mixed-signal IP portfolio is a tremendous challenge. MIPS Technologies' selection of Berkeley Design Automation tools further validates the strong competitive advantage our Precision Circuit Analysis technology provides to leading-edge analog/mixed-signal IP designers."
