Avertec joins the Current Source Model bandwagon

Munich, Germany, DATE05 - March 8, 2005 - Current Source Modeling (CSM) has been at the heart of Avertec's technology for several years, and now allows Avertec's Solutions to deal with 65nm digital custom designs like no other tool.

Avertec's modeling engine is based on a topological partitioning of the design. Partitions are modeled as current sources with semi-analytical equations, with transistor's current equations coming from BSIM models. Avertec's CSM then offers orders of magnitude gains in runtime versus electrical simulation, while keeping SPICE accuracy.

Within its timing and signal integrity technology, it allows fast delay calculation for arbitrary sets of process, voltage, temperature (PVT), as well as precise modeling of the effective load of long interconnects. Furthermore, Avertec's CSM is independent from the input waveform shape, and can advantageously replace rejection tables, allowing efficient noise propagation, and avoiding the extra pessimism inherent to traditional crosstalk analysis methodologies.

The HiTas platform has been adopted by major European semiconductor vendors to perform SI-aware timing characterization of custom macros, and fast re-characterization of cell libraries for any set of PVT.

Avertec's timing characterization is ready to support Synopsys Composite Current Source (CCS) and Cadence/Magma Effective Current Source Model (ECSM) formats.
