PARIS Berkeley Design Automation Inc. said it has qualified its Analog FastSPICE unified circuit verification platform for Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp.'s 28nm low power process.
In more specific terms, Berkeley's Analog FastSPICE tool was qualified through TSMC's SPICE Tool Qualification Program for 28nm low-power (LP) technology.
"Our 28nm LP certification via the TSMC SPICE Tool Qualification Program is an important milestone to support our mutual customers' success as they move to this advanced node," stated Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation.
"By working closely with TSMC, we can provide assurance that these customers have the verification tool that has the accuracy required for the most complex and highly integrated nanometer analog/RF designs."
Berkeley Design Automation said its Analog FastSPICE Platform (AFS Platform) is a unified circuit verification platform for analog, mixed-signal, and RF design. The AFS Platform is claimed to deliver true SPICE accurate results, while providing higher throughput and larger simulation capacity than traditional SPICE, with comprehensive device noise analysis.
The AFS Platform includes licenses for AFS Nano SPICE simulation, AFS circuit simulation, AFS Co-Simulation, AFS Transient Noise Analysis, and AFS RF Analysis.
