The Spectre X Simulator from Cadence Design Systems is a massively parallel circuit simulator designed to provide up to 10X performance gains, while maintaining accuracy in analogue, mixed-signal and RF applications. The simulator can solve 5X larger designs when compared to previous simulation solutions, enabling customers to effectively simulate circuits containing millions of transistors and billions of parasitics in a post-layout verification flow.
The Spectre X simulator offers customers the following benefits:
“The Spectre X Simulator marks the next generation of trusted simulators from Cadence, providing customers with the accuracy and speed needed to complete their designs efficiently to meet aggressive time-to-market goals,” said Tom Beckley, Cadence senior vice president and general manager, custom IC and PCB Group. “We have multiple customers already using the Spectre X simulator, and they are experiencing excellent results. With its massively parallel technology, faster runtime, and greater capacity, it’s the ideal simulator for use on advanced-node, analog, RF and mixed-signal designs.”
