Tanner brings 5x-10x faster nm SPICE accuracy to its customer base

Tanner EDA’s Analog FastSPICE (T-AFS) is now available, offering the Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE Platform as an add-on to Tanner EDA’s full-flow HiPer Silicon design suite. HiPer Silicon gives designers a complete analogue design flow from schematic capture and waveform probing to physical layout and physical verification.

The Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE (AFS) Platform is the world’s fastest nanometer circuit verification platform for analogue, RF, mixed-signal, and custom digital circuits. With Tanner Analog FastSPICE, Tanner EDA customers have access to foundry-certified nanometre SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster than any other simulator on a single core and an additional 2x-4x performance uptick with multithreading. Tanner EDA users will be able to verify the most challenging analogue/ RF circuits even as they have access to the latest foundry nanometer CMOS technology. For circuit characterisation, the T-AFS Platform includes the industry’s only comprehensive silicon-accurate device noise analysis and delivers near-linear performance scaling with the number of cores.

“The availability of Analog FastSPICE as an add-on to Tanner EDA’s analogue and mixed-signal design tools brings great benefit to Tanner EDA’s customers,” said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. “Analogue/ RF designers can realise the benefits of Tanner EDA’s full-flow analogue design suite that is now bolstered by Analog FastSPICE, allowing verification of very complex analogue/ RF circuits with nanometre SPICE-accurate results.”

“Tanner EDA is dedicated to providing our analogue, custom, and mixed-signal design customers with the best possible price for performance and productivity,” said Greg Lebsack, Tanner EDA’s president. “Offering Analog FastSPICE as a complement to our T-SPICE simulator enables our customers to tackle complex analogue/ RF circuit verification and delivers on our continued commitment to offer the widest possible choice of leading-edge technology.”
