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.

Berkeley Design Automation is challenging the nanoscale data horizon of electron, force, and energy field structures and interactions that determine key quantum effects and relativistic factors. Those research and development concepts rely on the data density of the atomic topological function used to model pico/femtostructures.
Recent advancements in quantum science have produced the picoyoctometric, 3D, interactive video atomic model imaging function, in terms of chronons and spacons for exact, quantized, relativistic animation. This format returns clear numerical data for a full spectrum of variables. The atom's RQT (relative quantum topological) data point imaging function is built by combination of the relativistic Einstein-Lorenz transform functions for time, mass, and energy with the workon quantized electromagnetic wave equations for frequency and wavelength.
The atom labeled psi (Z) pulsates at the frequency {Nhu=e/h} by cycles of {e=m(c^2)} transformation of nuclear surface mass to forcons with joule values, followed by nuclear force absorption. This radiation process is limited only by spacetime boundaries of {Gravity-Time}, where gravity is the force binding space to psi, forming the GT integral atomic wavefunction. The expression is defined as the series expansion differential of nuclear output rates with quantum symmetry numbers assigned along the progression to give topology to the solutions.
Next, the correlation function for the manifold of internal heat capacity energy particle 3D functions is extracted by rearranging the total internal momentum function to the photon gain rule and integrating it for GT limits. This produces a series of 26 topological waveparticle functions of the five classes; {+Positron, Workon, Thermon, -Electromagneton, Magnemedon}, each the 3D data image of a type of energy intermedon of the 5/2 kT J internal energy cloud, accounting for all of them.
Those 26 energy data values intersect the sizes of the fundamental physical constants: h, h-bar, delta, nuclear magneton, beta magneton, k (series). They quantize atomic dynamics by acting as fulcrum particles. The result is the exact picoyoctometric, 3D, interactive video atomic model data point imaging function, responsive to keyboard input of virtual photon gain events by relativistic, quantized shifts of electron, force, and energy field states and positions. This system also gives a new equation for the magnetic flux variable B, which appears as a waveparticle of changeable frequency.

September 2016 Cartoon Caption Contest "A Frosty Reception"Bob was dismayed. The portal to the 42nd dimension was clearly working. He just couldn't understand why they would not accept his daily gift of technology but insisted on sending him cartons of milk and bags of food with the names of his coworkers printed on them.145 comments
