Magma Design Automation Inc. has released the FineSim SPICE, a circuit simulator that dramatically speeds time to results for simulation and analysis while maintaining the accuracy of leading SPICE simulators. Based on advanced algorithms, FineSim SPICE can be parallelized over multiple CPUs for linear speed-up and higher capacity. By providing increased speed and capacity while maintaining full SPICE accuracy, FineSim SPICE allows designers to simulate advanced circuits, such as PLLs, ADCs, DACs and gigahertz SERDES, that they previously would not even attempt using slower traditional SPICE simulators. With the ability to accurately simulate these advanced designs faster, designers can reduce design and verification costs.

"The addition of FineSim SPICE to our circuit simulation product portfolio demonstrates Magma's commitment to understanding and meeting our customers' specific needs," said Suk Lee, general manager of Magma's Custom Design Business Unit. "While FineSim Pro is an innovative full-chip, transistor-level circuit simulator with three modes, FineSim SPICE targets designs that have traditionally proven to be impractical for SPICE-level simulation by dramatically shortening time to results while maintaining the highest level of accuracy."

FineSim SPICE integrates with Magma's SiliconSmart library characterisation to increase throughput and with Blast Rail NX power analysis software to provide enhanced dynamic power design simulation and analysis for leading-edge SoCs.
