SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Berkeley Design Automation, Inc., provider of the world’s fastest nanometer circuit verification, today announced that TSMC has incorporated the Analog FastSPICE Platform in its Custom Design Reference Flow for 20nm Device Noise Analysis and Circuit-Specific Process Corners. The TSMC Custom Design Reference Flow offers an advanced multi-EDA custom design flow to manage the growing complexity of process effects as well as design complexity in 20nm process nodes.
“The inclusion of the Analog FastSPICE Platform in the 20nm Custom Design Reference Flow is the result of several years of collaboration between TSMC and Berkeley Design Automation”
About Analog FastSPICE Platform
The Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE Platform is a unified nanometer circuit verification platform for analog, mixed-signal, RF, and custom design. It delivers nanometer SPICE accurate results with full-spectrum device noise analysis for circuit characterization and 10M-element capacity and mixed-signal simulation for large circuits.
“The inclusion of the Analog FastSPICE Platform in the 20nm Custom Design Reference Flow is the result of several years of collaboration between TSMC and Berkeley Design Automation,” said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. “Design teams face tremendous verification challenges in nanometer custom, analog, RF, and mixed-signal designs. Our continuing work with TSMC enables our joint customers to benefit from significant improvements in device noise analysis and circuit performance characterization technologies for custom circuits.”
“Designers using the Custom Design Reference Flow will benefit from differentiated capabilities the Analog FastSPICE Platform delivers for nanometer device noise analysis and circuit-specific process corners,” said Suk Lee, TSMC Senior Director, Design Infrastructure Marketing Division.
