I&C Technology selects Berkeley Design Automation analog FastSPICE platform for mobile TV SoCs

USA: Berkeley Design Automation Inc. announced that I&C Technology Co. Ltd, a developer of mobile TV SoCs, has selected the Analog FastSPICE (AFS) Platform for analog, RF, and mixed-signal circuit verification.

“I&C Technology's multi-mode, multi-band mobile TV SoCs operate on multiple standards and have stringent performance and power verification requirements,” said Sangyoub Lee, VP, RF/Analog R&D Center at I&C Technology.

“We selected the Analog FastSPICE Platform because it delivers nanometer SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster than traditional SPICE exceeding our requirements for verification and characterization of our high-performance analog, RF CMOS, and mixed-signal circuits for mobile TV applications.”

The Analog FastSPICE Platform provides the world’s fastest circuit verification for nanometer analog, RF, mixed-signal, and custom digital circuits. Foundry certified to 20nm, the AFS Platform delivers nanometer SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster on a single core and 2x-4x faster on multicore systems versus any other simulator.

For circuit characterization, the AFS Platform includes the industry’s only comprehensive silicon-accurate device noise analysis and delivers near-linear performance scaling with the number of cores. For large circuits, it delivers >10M-element capacity, the fastest near-SPICE-accurate simulation, and the fastest, most accurate mixed-signal simulation.

Available licenses include AFS circuit simulation, AFS Transient Noise Analysis, AFS RF Analysis, AFS Co-Simulation, AFS AMS, and AFS Nano SPICE.

“We are excited that I&C Technology selected the Analog FastSPICE Platform for their analog, RF CMOS, and mixed-signal verification flow,” said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation.

“Mobile TV platforms require high-performance and low-power radio and baseband circuit architectures that pose a tremendous verification challenge. I&C Technology’s selection of the AFS Platform validates once again the value BDA brings to semiconductor companies serving the mobile and consumer electronics markets.”
