Dolphin Technology Adopts NanoSpice Giga From ProPlus Design Solutions for 28/16nm IP Characterization, Verification

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- May 28, 2014 -- ProPlus Design Solutions, Inc. today announced Dolphin Technology has adopted NanoSpice™ Giga, a high performance, giga-scale capacity SPICE simulator, for use with 28- and 16-nanometer (nm) design characterization and verification.

NanoSpice Giga has been implemented into Dolphin Technology's design flow and used for both 28nm and 16nm FinFET product designs, and has run large post-layout cases with more than 120-million elements. According to Dolphin Technology, a leading provider of high-performance Semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP), NanoSpice Giga efficiently handles cases like this with a pure SPICE engine that delivers outstanding performance.

Dolphin Technology selected NanoSpice Giga for its ability to handle large-scale designs with a pure SPICE engine that eliminated the concern for inaccuracy. Additionally, Dolphin Technology, after an extensive evaluation of numerous simulator options, determined NanoSpice Giga was easy to use and required no complicated option settings and tuning.

"ProPlus and NanoSpice Giga surpassed our expectations," notes Mo Tamjidi, chief executive officer (CEO) of Dolphin Technology. "Our designs are large and complex, and moving to advanced nodes like 16nm FinFET requires high simulation accuracy. We need a tool such as NanoSpice Giga to efficiently and accurately characterize and verify them."

In addition, ProPlus, the leading technology provider of giga-scale parallel SPICE simulation, SPICE modeling solutions and Design-for-Yield (DFY) applications, and Dolphin Technology have established a long-term alliance to further boost NanoSpice's performance and capacity for faster simulation and larger circuits, such as NanoSpice Giga's ability to handle more than one-billion elements.

"Dolphin Technology pushed the boundaries with NanoSpice Giga to ensure accuracy, reliability and high performance for design characterization and verification," says Dr. Zhihong Liu, executive chairman and CEO of ProPlus Design Solutions. "With NanoSpice Giga's billion-element capacity and fast performance, designers now have new options when selecting a SPICE simulator. We're delighted to have an opportunity to team up with a leading-edge engineering organization like Dolphin Technology."
