Mentor Graphics launched the Eldo Premier SPICE simulation tool. The Eldo Premier tool accelerates the simulation of large circuits for both pre- and post-layout through the use of proprietary, advanced resolution techniques. Eldo Premier tool features full SPICE accuracy, up to 20X higher performance and 10X better capacity over traditional SPICE. The Eldo Premier tool is available now. The Mentor tool is ideal for applications requiring CPU-intensive transient simulations, such as TFT panels, PLLs and DLLs, frequency synthesizers, delta-sigma converters, ADC/DAC audio and video converters, automotive circuits, DC-DC converters, regulators, power management circuits, and memory-critical path analysis.
