Concept Engineering Introduces New SpiceVision PRO to Accelerate Debugging Process for Complex Digital, Mixed-Signal and Analog ICs



FREIBURG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 24, 2003--Concept Engineering today announced the release of SpiceVision(TM) PRO, a "turbo" version of SpiceVision, which in only a few months has become the industry-standard interactive visualization tool for chip designers who need to debug and analyze SPICE circuits and models.

Designers of complex digital, mixed signal and analog circuits -- which are prevalent in memory semiconductors, automotive, telecom, consumer and medical electronics -- are avid users of SpiceVision. Unlike SpiceVision, however, SpiceVision PRO is not limited to a certain number of components.

In addition, SpiceVision PRO comes with 64-bit support, a new high-speed database that accommodates larger designs and fast access to pre-compiled designs, and a tcl-based UserWare application programming interface (API) that enables users to customize the product. For example, customers can write their own electrical rule checkers (ERCs) and statistical reports, and create their own report files based on analysis tasks that they have defined via UserWare.

"Many of our customers are increasing the size and complexity of their designs and need higher capacity, speed and performance," said Gerhard Angst, president and CEO of Concept Engineering. "SpiceVision PRO offers this, along with the flexibility to create their own UserWare functions, and a new GUI that will significantly enhance their productivity."

SpiceVision PRO fits into any electronic design automation (EDA) environment where SPICE design files are used to verify circuit behavior. It produces clean, easy-to-read transistor-level schematics from complex SPICE descriptions, helps engineers visualize the parasitic effects within complex deep-submicron designs, and reduces the design and debug time for engineers who work at the SPICE netlist level. Using Concept Engineering's transistor-level schematic engine, SpiceVision PRO generates schematics from pure SPICE connectivity information.

SpiceVision PRO is available now for Solaris 32 and 64 bit workstations from Sun, as well as 32 bit HPUX, Linux, and Windows workstations.
