IOsemi selects Berkeley Design Automation
Analog FastSPICE Platform
Berkeley Design Automation, Inc. has announced that IO
Semiconductor Inc., has selected the Berkeley's AFS Platform
for RF verification and characterization.
"At IOsemi we have tremendous verification and characterization
challenges for our ZEROcap CMOS technology designs,"
said Stuart Molin, CTO at IOsemi. "We have standardized
on the Analog FastSPICE Platform because it provides nanometer
SPICE accuracy 5x to 10x faster than traditional SPICE,
exceeding our requirements for verification and characterization
of our high-performance CMOS RF front-end devices."
"We are delighted with the IOsemi selection of the
Analog FastSPICE Platform for their verification and characterization
flow," said Ravi Subramanian, president and CEO of
Berkeley Design Automation. "Achieving best-in-class
cellular front-end performance in an RF-CMOS platform is
a tremendous challenge. IOsemi's adoption of the AFS Platform
reinforces the fact that today's leading fabless semiconductor
companies select Berkeley Design Automation for nanometer
