In this session we provide an in-depth overview of Mentor’s recently launched Symphony Mixed-Signal Platform. Symphony is the industry’s fastest and most configurable mixed-signal solution to accurately verify design functionality, connectivity, and performance across analog/digital (A/D) interfaces at all levels of the design hierarchy. Symphony’s modular architecture leverages Mentor’s Analog FastSPICE (AFS) circuit simulator for performance, capacity and accuracy. AFS is foundry certified up to 5nm FinFET-based processes, provides nanometer (nm) SPICE accuracy and capacity of 20M SPICE elements. AFS provides high performance circuit verification for nanometer analog, RF, mixed-signal, memory, and custom digital circuits. Symphony powered by AFS provides customers with an average performance improvement of 2x over previous generation mixed-signal simulators along with best-in-class use model and advanced debug capabilities.
