PARIS Post-layout verification specialist EdXact SA said it will release version 5.0 of Jivaro netlist reduction platform for analog circuits and version 3.2 of Comanche post-layout analysis tool at this year's DAC in Anaheim. Enhancements include interactive debugging capabilities, hierarchical file handling and improved selectivity features.
EdXact (Grenoble, France) said version 5.0 of Jivaro enables to group parasitics by property so as to remodel them selectively.
Version 5.0 also features enhancements on EdXact’s PathFinder algorithm, a selectivity feature to accelerate simulation time, the company claimed.
In parallel, EdXact noted that version 3.2 of Comanche allows to interactively debug parasitics-related problems based on a graphical layout view in Cadence Virtuoso design environment, or in SpringSoft's Laker design environment.
The company added that Comanche 3.2 includes a new toolbox that generates statistics on a net-per-net basis and allows to compare two different extracted netlists.
