AXSEM Selects Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE Platform

Berkeley Design Automation Inc., provider of the Analog FastSPICE (AFS) unified circuit verification platform for advanced analog and RF integrated circuits (ICs), announced that AXSEM, a leading fabless manufacturer of ISM RFIC, has selected the AFS Platform for RF-CMOS wireless transceiver design and verification.

"We benchmarked the AFS Platform for our mixed-signal/RF products against various other tools," said Monika Brogle, Chief Technology Officer at AXSEM. "Berkeley Design Automation convinced us with identical results 5x-10x faster than traditional SPICE and at a reasonable cost. Switching to the AFS Platform enables us to verify our circuits much more thoroughly, enhance our design productivity, and create complex products without re-spins. We are committed to delivering RFIC with best in class performance. Berkeley Design Automation is the right tool set to achieve this goal."

Analog FastSPICE is the industry’s only unified circuit verification platform for analog, mixed-signal, and RF design. Always delivering true SPICE accurate results, it provides 5x-20x higher performance than traditional SPICE, >10 million-element capacity, and the industry’s only comprehensive noise analysis. The AFS Platform is a single executable that uses advanced algorithms and numerical analysis to rapidly solve the full-circuit matrix and original device equations without any shortcuts. AFS Platform tools include: AFS Nano SPICE simulator, Analog FastSPICE circuit simulator, Noise Analysis Option? device noise analyzer, and RF FastSPICE multi-tone periodic analyzer.

"We are delighted that AXSEM has selected Analog FastSPICE for their wireless transceiver verification," said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. "AXSEM’s ultra-low cost, low-power, and high-performance semiconductor solutions for wireless peripherals involve significant RF-CMOS technology challenges. AXSEM’s selection of the AFS Platform validates the strong competitive advantage Berkeley Design Automation provides to IC design teams for virtually every wireless application."
