Maxim Adopts Magma's FineSim Spice to Reduce Time to Market for Mixed-Signal Analog Designs
October 24, 2007 -- Magma Design Automation, Inc. today announced that Maxim Integrated Products has adopted FineSim Spice. FineSim Spice, Magma's Spice-level simulator that incorporates transistor-level simulation analysis capabilities for mixed digital and analog design, runs on both multiple-CPU and multiple-machine compute environments, can simulate much larger designs than traditional Spice simulation could handle yet delivers silicon-accurate results.
FineSim Spice contains a full Spice simulation engine with distributed processing that enables designers to simulate large-scale mixed-signal system chips at the transistor level. By providing increased speed and capacity while maintaining full Spice accuracy, FineSim Spice enables simulation of advanced circuits.
"By using FineSim Spice, our designers can reduce simulation run time while preserving Spice-level accuracy,'' said Dr. Saeed Navid, vice president at Maxim. "Combined with our advanced mixed-signal simulation environment, FineSim Spice delivers significant performance improvement.''
