Cadence Design Systems India Pvt Ltd, a subsidiary of Cadence Design Systems Inc., has announced that Cosmic Circuits has experienced up to eight times improvement in performance after adopting the new version of the Cadence Virtuoso Spectre Circuit Simulator featuring "turbo" technology.

The Spectre simulator, with its recently introduced turbo technology, enabled Cosmic Circuits to improve simulation runtime for design verification—accelerating time to market—with no loss in SPICE accuracy. C Srinivasan, Cosmic Circuits vice president of Engineering, said that they are now able to do high-performance simulation of full 10-bit analogue to digital converters (ADC's), DC-DC converters and phased locked loops with parasitics in real time.

Cadence says that the Spectre turbo technology, which includes advanced device model analysis techniques and a built-in multi-threaded algorithm, addresses a broad variety of challenges across all analogue design methodologies and process nodes by delivering up to 10 times performance gain over existing solutions without any loss in accuracy. The turbo technology also analyses the potential impact of physical parasitics that can threaten designs in advanced process nodes, delivering up to 20 times performance gains for designs with large amounts of parasitics.
