SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 28, 2007 – Legend Design Technology, Inc. today announced the release of Turbo-MSIM, a Fast-SPICE circuit simulator with super high speed and extremely large capacity while maintaining the SPICE accuracy. Turbo-MSIM can dramatically speed the time for simulating either full-chip hierarchical circuits or the flattened layout-extracted netlists with a huge number of resistors and capacitors. For nanometer circuit designs using complex device models, Turbo-MSIM has the capability to perform full-chip transistor-level simulation and analysis, and nails down any design and layout problem for achieving silicon success.
“Legend is committed to provide a leading-edge simulation solution with best price-performance for customers. In addition to our popular MSIM SPICE simulator, Turbo-MSIM Fast-SPICE simulator is released to provide a complete solution for verification, analysis and characterization. With extensive R&D efforts and field experiences, we have successfully developed next-generation algorithms built into Turbo-MSIM to meet technology challenges and customers’ needs.” said Dr. You-Pang Wei, president and chief executive officer of Legend Design Technology, Inc.
For detailed and critical-path circuit simulation, Legend’s MSIM has been proven very efficient for the applications such as analog designs and library characterization. As for complex full-chip circuit simulation, Turbo-MSIM has demonstrated the capability of dramatically increasing the speed and capacity, especially for the extracted circuits from layout. The targets of Turbo-MSIM applications will be the large digital circuits, full memory circuits, analog and mixed-signal designs. For memory circuit verification and characterization, Turbo-MSIM has shown its excellent price performance, and already integrated with Legend’s CharFlo-Memory! characterization tool for the throughputs.
Turbo-MSIM will be available in Q3, 2007 from Legend Design Technology, Inc. At DAC 2007 in San Diego, California, Legend will be demonstrating Turbo-MSIM at Booth #5073.
Legend Design Technology Inc. is a leading provider of circuit simulation and semiconductor IP characterization software for SoC designs. With an emphasis on productivity and value, Legend’s CharFlo-Memory! toolset revolutionizes the time-consuming and error-prone processes associated with characterization. MSIM is Legend’s high-accuracy SPICE circuit simulator with great convergence and extensive model support. Turbo-MSIM is Legend’s high-speed and high-capacity circuit simulator ideal for timing and power simulation, and function verification. Both simulators are well designed for nanometer technology challenges, and provide excellent price performance. For more information, visit www.LegendDesign.com.
