re: Cadence tips faster Spice coming soon

Just to make sure that everyone knows what Tom Beckley was talking about (Frank Eory obviously does, but I am not quite sure about Peter Clarke): Tom Beckley was talking about a new FastSpice simulator (like UltraSim, see also http://www.semiwiki.com/forum/f141/spice-fast-spice-analog-fast-spice-318.html ) and not about a faster SPICE simulator (like Spectre or APS).

It will be interesting to see how this new FastSpice performs on the speed vs. accuracy trade-off and how it compares with earlier accelerated analog simulators like UltraSim.

Methinks "once a thief, always a thief." How do you even make sure they didn't use the same code again...to make a faster and less accurate simulator.

Those in the industry I think understands that speed is getting the simulations completed within a shorter time. Today, it takes ages for fairly large designs

simulate a 29-Gbyte memory in "a matter of hours."I think Spice shines in analog simulation rather than logic. What does it really mean by "speed" if we just use the spice to simulate the logic. BTW, is there any benchmark we can trust? Some said the best spice indeed is the free LTspice easily be downloaded from www.linear.com

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
