Magma’s FineSim SPICE enables Dolphin technology to achieve 6X faster simulation runtime

SAN JOSE, USA: Magma Design Automation Inc. announced that Dolphin Technology, Inc., a leading provider of performance-optimized system-on-a-chip (SoC) memory cores and performance-matched standard cell libraries and input/outputs (IOs), has standardized on the FineSim SPICE multi-CPU circuit simulation technology to accelerate delivery of high quality intellectual property (IP).

Magma’s FineSim SPICE has enabled Dolphin Technology to quickly and accurately run thousands of simulations of their IP across all process corners. By increasing simulation coverage without sacrificing accuracy, FineSim SPICE enables Dolphin Technology to provide their customers with highly reliable, high yielding IP.

“I founded Dolphin Technology with the singular purpose of delivering high quality, high-performance, fab-verified silicon-IP in a fraction of the time and cost of in-house development,” said Mo Tamjidi, CEO of Dolphin Technology. “We need a SPICE simulator that can keep pace with the increasing complexity of our IP. With FineSim SPICE we can achieve remarkably fast simulation runtimes and improve utilization, which allows us to reduce time to market while improving IP quality.”

“Dolphin Technology's IP is used by world-leading semiconductor and telecommunication companies that demand fast turnaround time, high performance and low power,” said Anirudh Devgan, GM of Magma’s Custom Design Business Unit. “Offering fast, accurate multi-CPU simulation, FineSim SPICE is uniquely able to help Dolphin Technology meet and beat customer requirements.”
