Invarian to Release InVar 3.0 at DAC 2014

Concurrent power, EM/IR and thermal analysis solution now 3-4x faster

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 29, 2014Invarian, Inc., provider of block-level to full-chip power analysis solutions for electronic design automation (EDA), will release version 3.0 of the company’s concurrent power and EM/IR validation solution for large capacity designs in booth #706 at the 2014 Design Automation Conference ( DAC). InVarTM 3.0 is a TSMC-certified power estimation and validation solution used throughout the flow. DAC 2014 runs from June 1 to June 5 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.

InVar solutions tackle analog and digital designs with concurrent analysis of power, EM/IR, signal timing, and temperature. Advanced algorithms enable sign-off with real life measurement accuracy. InVar 3.0, demonstrated for the first time at DAC 2014, is 3-4x faster than previous version without sacrificing physical lab accuracy. InVar also now supports electrostatic discharge (ESD). SPICE-level accuracy of results are best in class at 16nm, 20nm, and 28nm. Invarian is certified by TSMC for several process nodes including 16nm FinFET Power and EM/IR.

“Customers are finding InVar ideally suited for power estimates that can vastly improve the accuracy of an RTL-through-to-layout flow,” said Jens Andersen, CEO of Invarian. “Our tool is ideal for SPICE co-simulations of analog designs where EM/IR is of concern. For digital designs, we incorporate a number of techniques to speed the analysis while maintaining SPICE-level accuracy. This has major benefits when incorporated through feedback loops to leverage existing optimized flows with just plain simple better data.”

About Invarian and Invar

Invarian is revolutionizing block-level to full-chip sign-off analysis for complex, high-performance integrated circuits (ICs). Invar consists of a new era methodology using parallel architecture and concurrent power-voltage-thermal analysis to provide engineers with fast, accurate, consistent results from gate level through the 3D package environment. The accuracy of Invarian sign-off analysis for analog, digital and mixed-signal ICs identifies post-manufacturing failures before tape-out, reducing costly re-spins. Customers are using this cost-effective, comprehensive solution to develop digital and analog/mixed-signal chips in areas such as mobile technology, CPUs, wireless and networking, and for a variety of processes including TSMC-certified 16nm.
