Infinisim, Inc. recently launched RASER, which is a simulator for mixed-signal ICs. RASER ensures SPICE accurate results with an average of 50 times speedup and capacity for large mixed-signal circuits. RASER is the first simulator in the market that does not trade off accuracy for capacity and performance.
RASER features Infinisim’s Real-time Adaptive Simulation (RAS) technology. RAS adapts to the changing circuit simulation environment at every time-point of the simulation while using the full device models and adhering to the full SPICE accuracy requirements. Using this technology, RASER is able to automatically and simultaneously deliver SPICE accuracy and handle large-scale mixed-signal circuits. This approach has been proven to handle 50X larger designs than what traditional SPICE simulators can handle, while concurrently providing an average of 50X speed improvement with full SPICE accuracy.
RASER is ideally suited to circuits like SerDes, high-speed wireline/wireless communication channels, precision analog interfaces, image sensors, critical paths in SoCs and clock networks. These designs typically consist of large numbers of elements and require SPICE simulation accuracy with high performance. As an example, SerDes transceivers are commonly designed in nanometer process technologies. To ensure that timing and power specs are met, high accuracy and the ability to simulate the entire system together become necessary. At the same time, simulating over operating modes, deep-submicron process variation space and environmental conditions requires simulations to be fast enough to facilitate maximum design coverage prior to tape-out.
