Grenoble, France – July 13th, 2015 -- Dolphin Integration delivers new releases of its EDA Solutions for front-end design: the schematic editor SLED along with the mixed-signal simulator SMASH.
SLED enables designers to graphically capture and configure their designs. The flexibility of the schematic editor SLED offers the possibility to design true mixed-signal circuits as well as multi-level and multi-physics systems.
For each process node and variant, foundries provide a Process Design Kit (PDK) containing all the files needed for front-end and back-end design. To assist in the integration of PDK files relevant for front-end design, SLED 2.4 delivers a PDK import feature enabling fast and easy generation of a SLED front-end PDK. SLED 2.4 also delivers ergonomic and ease of use enhancements to constantly improve the overall user experience and productivity.

SMASH is renowned in the analog design community as a state-of-the art mixed-signal simulator with multi-language and multi-level simulation capabilities. Staying on the cutting edge of simulator performance, SMASH 6.4 offers 3 major steps forward:
- Thanks to a new analog solver, SMASH 6.4 shortens simulations of big analog circuits from weeks to days (see Figure 1).
- Loading of logic circuits is up to 2 times faster than previously thanks to the integration of a new compiler.
- Increased speed and reduced memory footprint under Linux with a native SMASH application.
SMASH simulation run time
SMASH 6.4 also delivers long-awaited features such magnetizing of waveforms for easy viewing of signal characteristics, continuing transient simulation even after the initial end time has been reached, as well as user friendly IDE enhancements to constantly improve the overall user experience and productivity.

About Dolphin Integration
Dolphin Integration contributes to "enabling mixed signal Systems-on-Chip" for worldwide customers - up to the major actors of the semiconductor industry - with Silicon IP components best at low-power consumption.
This wide offering is based on innovative libraries of standard cells, register files, memory generators and power regulators. Complete networks for power supply can be flexibly assembled together with their loads: from high-resolution converters for audio and measurement applications to power-optimized micro-controllers of 8 or 16 and 32 bits.
Over 30 years of diverse experiences in the integration of silicon IP components and providing services for ASIC/SoC design and fabrication, with its own EDA solutions solving unaddressed challenges, make Dolphin Integration a genuine one-stop shop covering all customers’ needs for specific requests.
The company striving to incessantly innovate for its customers’ success has led to two strong differentiators:
- state-of-the-art “configured subsystems” for high-performance applications securing the most competitive SoC architectural solutions,
- a team of Integration and Application Engineers supporting each user’s need for optimal application schematics, demonstrated through EDA solutions enabling early performance assessments
Its social responsibility has been from the start focused on the design of integrated circuits with low-power consumption, placing the company in the best position to now contribute to new applications for general power savings through the emergence of the Internet of Things.
