Hitachi Reduces Verification Turnaround Time for Mixed-Signal Chip with Cadence Virtuoso AMS Designer

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 25, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced that Hitachi Ltd. utilized Cadence® Virtuoso® AMS Designer to significantly reduce the verification time for a new backplane signal conditioner mixed-signal chip, while also improving quality with chip verification. The rapid growth of mixed-signal design complexity presents considerable verification challenges to reduce time to market and improve design quality. Using Virtuoso AMS Designer together with real number modeling (RNM) techniques, Hitachi was able to simulate the entire design and reduce the verification time from days to minutes. Hitachi presented a paper on this design and their use of Virtuoso AMS Designer and RNM on February 23 at ISSCC 2015 in San Francisco, Calif.
