Synopsys Inc. and Sigrity Inc. collaborate to unveil the HSPICE 2011.09, an accelerated signal integrity simulation solution for high-speed systems that is said to offer up to 3x faster simulation of signal and power integrity analysis of multi-gigahertz designs.

In the latest release of the HSPICE circuit simulator, Synopsys has employed in-memory communication to deliver deeper integration with Sigrity's signal integrity analysis offerings. In addition, the HSPICE 2011.09 release provides enhanced multi-core simulation performance, improved accuracy in statistical eye-diagram analysis, and new multi-core enabled S-parameter and W-element analysis.

Sigrity's solutions are aimed at use with HSPICE for signal, power integrity and electromagnetic interference analysis of high-speed boards, packages and integrated circuits. Sigrity tools generate interconnect models in either a traditional format or in Sigrity's Broadband Network Parameter (BNP) format, which contains richer frequency domain data in a compact format. HSPICE 2011.09 has been enhanced to support the BNP format using a unique API that facilitates direct in-memory communication between HSPICE and Sigrity's electromagnetic solver, improving simulation throughput, accuracy and convergence.
