Berkeley Design Automation’s Nanometer Circuit Verification Platform Selected by eMemory Technology

Berkeley Design Automation, Inc., provider of the world’s fastest nanometer circuit verification, today announced that eMemory Technology, a leader in embedded non-volatile memory silicon IP, has selected the company’s Analog FastSPICE (AFS) Platform for block-level characterization, and full-circuit verification of its embedded non-volatile memory products for SoCs in wireless, consumer, industrial, and automotive applications.

“We have stringent verification requirements for our NeoEE product, a true rewritable memory technology implemented in CMOS with up to 100K program/erase cycles,” said C.Y. Lin, Vice President, R&D, eMemory Technology.

“We selected the AFS Platform because it delivers nanometer SPICE accuracy significantly faster than traditional SPICE simulators to verify and characterize our 28nm CMOS embedded non-volatile memory IP for PMICs, MCUs, RFICs, and other SoCs.”

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 Mega, AFS Nano, AFS Transient Noise Analysis, AFS RF Analyses, AFS Co-Simulation, AFS AMS, and ACE.

“We are delighted that eMemory has selected the AFS Platform for verification and characterization of their embedded non-volatile memory products.” said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. “Developing cost-effective and size-competitive embedded non-volatile memory is a tremendous design challenge. eMemory’s selection validates the tremendous value Berkeley Design Automation brings to semiconductor memory developers.”
