Berkeley Design Automation Inc., provider of the Analog FastSPICE (AFS) unified circuit verification platform today announced its 2009_05 major release.

Within a single executable, the AFS Platform enables analogue, mixed-signal, and RF design teams to verify what would otherwise require numerous simulators. With this release, the AFS Platform delivers foundry-certified true SPICE accuracy 5x-20x faster than traditional SPICE for every type of analysis on circuits with up to 10 million elements. The result is proven 2x higher efficiency versus tradition circuit simulators.

The new AFS platform release includes:
•  New AFS Mega-Solver matrix solvers that deliver efficient convergence and fast transient analysis for pre-layout and post-layout circuits with up to 10M elements.
• New AFS Multi-Core capability which provide up to an additional 2x or higher performance than single-threaded Analog FastSPICE when run on up to 4 cores.
•  Enhanced Monte Carlo analysis that supports all commonly used features, including Latin Hypercube Sampling, in the industry's leading netlist styles.
•  WaveCrave waveform processor enhancements that provide improved performance, advanced RF calculator functions, 64-bit capacity, and enhanced output file support.
•  New "master" licences that enable unlimited use of the company's true SPICE accurate Noise Analysis Option and AFS Co-Simulation option.

The AFS platform is a single executable that uses advanced algorithms and numerical analysis to rapidly solve the full-circuit matrix and original device equations without any shortcuts. AFS platform tools include: AFS Nano SPICE simulator, Analog FastSPICE circuit simulator, Noise Analysis Option device noise analyser, and RF FastSPICE multi-tone periodic analyser.
