Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE Platform Adopted by Panasonic for Mass-Production of Mixed-Signal LSIs

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 19, 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 Panasonic Corporation, a world leader in products, systems, and components for consumer electronics, has selected the company's Analog FastSPICE™ platform for use in their production flow for verification of mixed-signal integrated circuits.

"We spend a significant amount of effort on mixed-signal verification and noise analysis of mixed-signal integrated circuits," said Masahiko Matsumoto, Director of the Analogue LSI Business Unit, Semiconductor Company, Panasonic Corporation. "After a rigorous evaluation of the Analog FastSPICE platform on a variety of mixed-signal integrated circuits, we have decided to deploy this platform for mass-production use in Panasonic."

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.

"Today, we are seeing leading companies all over the world embarking on a major retooling for next-generation analog, mixed-signal, and RF design to improve their verification efficiency," said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. "We are delighted that Panasonic Corporation has chosen to deploy the Analog FastSPICE platform for production use. This adoption validates, once again, that Berkeley Design Automation is an essential partner as companies embark on new tooling strategies for greater verification efficiency."
