MagnaChip Selects Mentor Graphics Analog FastSPICE Platform for Verification of Analog and Mixed-Signal Designs

WILSONVILLE, Ore., June 22, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Mentor Graphics Corp. (Nasdaq: MENT) today announced that MagnaChip Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: MX), a Korea-based designer and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products for high-volume consumer applications, has selected the Mentor® Analog FastSPICE™ (AFS™) Platform for circuit verification and device noise analysis of their analog and mixed-signal designs including display drivers, power management ICs, and PLLs.

"We needed to reduce our long circuit simulation time and include device noise analysis in our analog and mixed-signal circuit verification flow," said Dr. Kihyun Kim, senior manager, Design Technology at MagnaChip. "We selected the AFS Platform because it demonstrated SPICE accurate results 2.5x-4x faster than our existing parallel SPICE simulator in multiple analog circuits."

The AFS Platform provides the world's fastest circuit verification for nanometer analog, RF, mixed-signal, memory, and custom digital circuits. Foundry certified by the world's leading foundries and IDMs, the AFS Platform delivers nanometer SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster than traditional SPICE and 2x-6x faster than parallel SPICE simulators. For large circuits the AFS Platform delivers greater than 20M element capacity and the fastest mixed-signal simulation. For memory and other array-based circuits, AFS Mega delivers silicon-accurate simulation with greater than 100M element capacity. For silicon-accurate characterization it includes the industry's only comprehensive full-spectrum device noise analysis and a high-productivity Analog Characterization Environment product —both of which deliver 5x-10x speedup over alternative approaches.

"We are very pleased that MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation has selected the Analog FastSPICE Platform for circuit verification and device noise analysis of their analog and mixed-signal designs," said Ravi Subramanian, general manager of AMS products in the DSM division, Mentor Graphics. "MagnaChip offers one of the broadest and deepest analog and mixed-signal semiconductor technology platforms in the industry and we are delighted to be one of their essential partners."
