Tanner Analog FastSPICE Features Berkeley Design Automation AFS

Tanner EDA introduced Tanner Analog FastSPICE (T-AFS), which adds Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE Platform to Tanner EDA’s full-flow HiPer Silicon design suite. With the availability of Analog FastSPICE as an add-on to Tanner EDA’s analog and mixed-signal design tools, RF designers can realize the benefits of Tanner EDA’s full-flow analog design suite. Analog FastSPICE enables verification of very complex analog/ RF circuits with nanometer SPICE-accurate results.

Analog, mixed-signal, and RF designers have increasing requirements for circuit simulation performance and capacity with nanometer SPICE accuracy. The Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE (AFS) Platform is the world’s fastest nanometer circuit verification platform for analog, RF, mixed-signal, and custom digital circuits.

With Tanner Analog FastSPICE, Tanner EDA customers have access to foundry-certified nanometer 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 analog/ RF circuits even as they have access to the latest foundry nanometer CMOS technology. For circuit characterization, 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.

HiPer Silicon gives designers a complete analog design flow from schematic capture and waveform probing to physical layout and physical verification. The Tanner Analog FastSPICE add-ons can be purchased and added to existing HiPer tools. Each T-AFS token license will enable 50K element capacity, with users having the option to linearly scale tokens for larger designs. Multi-core is also supported and is scaled linearly (add one T-AFS token for every core). List pricing for token licenses: $30K per token/ year, 5 packs of tokens are $100K/ year, and 10 packs of tokens are $150K/ year. Transient noise tokens also can be added to any T-AFS package at a cost of $25K / token/ year.
