Offers up to 3X faster simulation of signal and power integrity analysis of multi-gigahertz designs
Software and IP firm Synopsys and signal and power integrity offerings provider Sigrity have unveiled an enhanced offering that accelerates signal integrity simulation of high-speed systems.
The combined Synopsys and Sigrity offering offers 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.
Further, HSPICE 2011.09 has been enhanced to support the Broadband Network Parameter (BNP) format using an API that facilitates direct in-memory communication between HSPICE and Sigrity’s electromagnetic solver, improving simulation throughput, accuracy and convergence.
Sigrity’s offerings are widely used with HSPICE for signal, power integrity and electromagnetic interference analysis of high-speed boards, packages and integrated circuits.
Synopsys Marketing senior director Farhad Hayat said signal integrity analysis of high-speed systems requires fast and accurate HSPICE simulation, as well as specialized analyses provided by the HSPICE Integrator Program (HIP) partners such as Sigrity.
"The latest improvements in the HSPICE 2011.09 release for signal integrity analysis, combined with the large ecosystem of HIP partners, give designers access to best-in-class simulation and analyses for designing high-speed integrated circuits, printed circuit boards and packages," said Hayat.
