Free Webinar on SPICE Simulation

Free Webinar on SPICE Simulation
by Tom Simon on 10-01-2020 at 10:00 am

The world of SPICE simulators is one filled with compromises. Typically, it is possible to choose the highest accuracy and pay a performance and capacity penalty, or to choose high speed and capacity but give up accuracy in the process. Many semiconductor companies have been turning to Primarius Technologies to help escape these compromises. Over the last ten years, with a team of industry veterans and support from tier one VCs, they have developed a comprehensive SPICE simulation offering that speeds up full SPICE, offers extremely accurate high-speed SPICE and adds some unique features to enable statistical analysis and Design for Yield (DFY).

In an upcoming free webinar to air on October 8th at 10AM Pacific time, Yeuh Wang from Primarius will present a complete overview of their NanoSpice, GigaSpice and NanoSpice Pro products. NanoSpice is a pure SPICE simulator that offers parallel processing implemented such that there is excellent linear scaling as cores are added. NanoSpice offers comprehensive model support and has wide foundry acceptance. NanoSpice offers a capacity of over 50 million elements, and more than a 2X speed up over other pure SPICE simulators. It is ready for FinFET designs from 16 down to 7nm.

GigaSpice is a high accuracy alternative to FastSPICE simulators which can be difficult to set up properly and suffer from reduced accuracy. In the webinar Yeuh will talk about how with lower supply voltages and higher speeds, it is not always acceptable to only run the top level of large designs with a less accurate FastSPICE. GigaSpice can handle over 10^9 elements and runs faster than FastSPICE. Primarius has eliminated the difficult process of tuning the simulator with FastSPICE options that can often lead to inaccurate results.

Fitting in between these two offerings NanoSpice Pro, is a dual engine multicore SPICE that can run large size designs that would normally require FastSPICE. It offers a manifold improvement in runtimes with the accuracy necessary to tackle all aspects of memory design, among other tasks. It can utilize over 32 cores for parallel processing.

The icing on the cake is that Primarius also offers unique DFY capabilities within their SPICE simulation tools. These include Fast PVT, Monte Carlo and High Sigma analysis. They also have sophisticated design for reliability features that can help predict aging effects.

The webinar will cover a lot of material, including benchmark results and a deeper dive into the technology than we can offer here. If you are looking for a way to improve the speed, accuracy, or usability of your SPICE flows, this webinar will be worth your time. You can register here for the webinar for October 8th at 10AM Pacific time.
