SuVolta expands commitment to Magma’s FineSim SPICE

SAN JOSE, USA: Magma Design Automation Inc. announced that SuVolta Inc., a developer of scalable low-power CMOS technologies, has expanded its business relationship with Magma by entering into a licensing agreement to use the FineSim SPICE multi-CPU circuit simulator.

SuVolta’s PowerShrink low-power platform reduces the power consumed by integrated circuits (ICs) by 50 percent or more while maintaining the same performance levels by minimizing the electrical variation of the millions of transistors on a chip. Using FineSim SPICE, SuVolta reduced simulation runtime, enabling the design team to increase test coverage by 4X without sacrificing accuracy.

“Our technology is used by advanced semiconductor companies that require the highest level of accuracy in verification of test chip data,” said Robert Rogenmoser, senior VP of Product Development and Engineering, SuVolta. “Magma’s FineSim SPICE provides SuVolta with runtime improvements to ensure our designs are of the highest quality.”

“SuVolta has emerged with game-changing technology that significantly reduces power consumption,” said Anirudh Devgan, GM of Magma’s Custom Design Business Unit. “Their innovative approach is enhanced by the fast and accurate simulation of FineSim SPICE.”
