San Jose, CA--November 25, 1996--Avant! Corp. (Sunnyvale, CA) announced that it is introducing a new capability to its high-speed, high-capacity, timing and power simulator, STAR-ADM.
The new capability is a linear acceleration technology which improves the simulation speed of STAR-ADM by over 10X for analysis and verification of very deep submicron digital and analog designs.
The new capability offers accelerated simulation performance while reducing memory use for designs with large parasitic elements by up to 90 percent. It targets applications such as high-performance CPU, memory, analog, and mixed-signal designs.
The linear acceleration feature is packaged as an option to STAR-ADM. It supports standard Spice netlist exchanges to all popular extraction tools and waveform viewers. STAR-ADM simulators start at $65,000. The linear acceleration option is priced at $20,000 and is available now for Sun and HP Unix workstations.
