Virtuoso Accelerated Parallel Simulator, part of Virtuoso Multi-Mode Simulation, performs advanced SPICE-accurate simulation for faster convergence on design goals while offering scalable performance and capacity. It is tightly integrated with the Virtuoso custom design platform, allowing engineers to capture and pass design intent in the same environment, and it provides all the transistor-level analysis capabilities of Virtuoso Spectre Circuit Simulator.
Virtuoso Accelerated Parallel Simulator’s proprietary full-matrix–solving technology delivers unparalleled scalability and multi-threading capability using modern multi-core compute platforms. These features and more ensure precise simulation without sacrificing accuracy of results.
Provides 10x-100x the single-thread performance (10x over the Spectre baseline) with out-of-box SPICE accuracy and convergence
Enables high-precision simulation for large, post-layout analog designs and subsystems that have a high ratio of passive to active devices—without compromising accuracy
Delivers scalable performance with a multi-core architecture, allowing higher levels of analog design integration and verification
Uses foundry-certified device models (common across all simulation engines in the Virtuoso Multi-Mode Simulation solution) to ensure silicon-accurate analog designs
