Panasonic standardizes on Magma’s FineSim Spice simulator

To predict the performance of large analog designs and reduce the time required for IC development and fabrication

By CBR Staff Writer

Panasonic, a provider of consumer electronics products, has standardized on FineSim Spice simulator with scalable multi-CPU technology from Magma Design Automation, a provider of chip design software, for verification of large analog IP designs.

Magma has said that with FineSim Spice in the production analog design flow, Panasonic designers have access to accurate, high-capacity Spice simulation technology that enables them to verify circuit performance of designs that previously were too large and complex to simulate. The ability to accurately predict performance of these large analog designs prior to manufacturing reduces the time and effort required for integrated circuits (IC) development and fabrication.

FineSim Spice is a Spice-level simulation analysis tool that incorporates transistor-level simulation analysis capabilities for mixed digital and analog designs. It is a full Spice simulation engine with distributed processing which is expected to enable customers to simulate large-scale mixed-signal system chips at the transistor level.

Anirudh Devgan, general manager custom design business unit at Magma, said: Leveraging Magma’s Native Parallel Technology FineSim Spice offers truly scalable multi-CPU performance and capacity while delivering silicon-accurate results. This enables our customers to manufacture their ICs with confidence in meeting expected profit margins. We are pleased that Panasonic is standardizing on our technology for their most challenging consumer ICs.
