SiTime Adopts Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE Platform With AFS Nano

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 10, 2009— Berkeley Design Automation Inc., provider of the Analog FastSPICE unified circuit verification platform for advanced analog and RF integrated circuits (ICs), today announced that SiTime Corporation, a leading provider of Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) based silicon timing solutions has adopted the company's Analog FastSPICE™ unified verification platform including the AFS Nano SPICE simulator for verifying its advanced timing circuits.

"SiTime requires extremely accurate and rigorous verification for our state-of-the-art MEMS-based silicon timing solutions," said Fari Assaderaghi, Ph.D., vice president of engineering at SiTime. "The Analog FastSPICE Platform enables us to verify our circuits much more efficiently at the block, complex-block, and full-circuit level—including verifying aspects that were previously impractical or impossible. We successfully used the Analog FastSPICE circuit simulator, AFS Co-Simulation, and the Noise Analysis Option extensively on our most recent design."

Analog FastSPICE is the industry’s only unified circuit verification platform for analog, mixed-signal, and RF design. Always delivering true SPICE accurate results, it provides 5x-10x higher performance than traditional SPICE, >1 million-element capacity, and the industry’s only comprehensive noise analysis. 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 analyzer, and RF FastSPICE™ multi-tone periodic analyzer.

"We are excited that SiTime has selected our complete Analog FastSPICE platform for their verification flow," said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. "SiTime designs some of the most innovative integrated circuits in the world. Our Analog FastSPICE unified verification platform enabled them to verify critical aspects of their MEMS-based designs that would otherwise be impossible or impractical. Their ability to quickly make extensive use of nearly every aspect of the AFS Platform demonstrates the power of our single-executable approach to design teams worldwide."
