Toumaz Adopts Berkeley Design Automation Analog FastSPICE™ Platform

Platform Delivers Full-Spectrum RF Characterization Results within 1-2dB of Silicon Data

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 16, 2011 — Berkeley Design Automation, Inc., provider of the world’s fastest nanometer circuit verification, today announced that Toumaz, the leading provider of ultra-low energy wireless telemetry technologies, has selected the company’s AFS Platform for RF block characterization and full-circuit transceiver verification.

"For over four years we have relied on the AFS Platform for full-circuit verification of our ultra low-power transceivers for medical applications," said Alan Wong, head of IC design for Toumaz. "We use the full-spectrum AFS RF periodic noise analysis for characterizing our post-layout RF blocks and the simulation results are within 1-2dB of silicon measurements."

The Analog FastSPICE Platform is the world’s fastest nanometer circuit verification platform for analog, RF, mixed-signal, and custom digital circuits. The AFS Platform delivers foundry-certified nanometer SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster than any other simulator on a single core and an additional 2x-4x performance with multithreading. 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 industry’s fastest near-SPICE-accurate simulation, and co-simulation with leading Verilog® simulators. Available licenses include AFS circuit simulation, AFS Transient Noise Analysis, AFS RF Analysis, AFS Co-Simulation, and AFS Nano SPICE.

"We are very proud of our continuing relationship with Toumaz, a pioneer of ultra-low energy wireless telemetry technologies for medical monitoring and internet-connected consumer devices," said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. "The full- circuit transceiver verification and full-spectrum RF block characterization that the AFS Platform delivers enable Toumaz to meet their design quality and time-to-market objectives."
