Spectre Circuit Simulator delivers advanced simulation and detailed transistor-level analysis in multiple domains

 Spectre Circuit Simulator Datasheet »

Cadence® Spectre® Circuit Simulator provides fast, accurate SPICE-level simulation for tough analog, radio frequency (RF) and mixed-signal circuits. It is tightly integrated with the Virtuoso custom design platform and provides detailed transistor-level analysis in multiple domains. Its superior architecture allows for low memory consumption and high-capacity analysis.

Features/Benefits
  • Provides high-performance, high-capacity SPICE-level analog and RF simulation with out-of-the-box tuning for accuracy and convergence
  • Facilitates the tradeoff between accuracy and performance through user-friendly simulation setup applicable to the most complex analog and custom-digital ICs
  • Enables accurate and efficient post-layout simulation with RLCK parasitics, S-Parameter models (n-port), and lossy coupled transmission lines (mtline)
  • Performs application-specific analysis of RF performance parameters (spectral response, gain compression, inter-modulation distortion, impedance matching, stability, isolation)
  • Includes advanced statistical analysis (Smart, MonteCarlo, DCmatch) to help design companies improve the manufacturability and yield of ICs at advanced process nodes without sacrificing time to market
  • Delivers fast interactive simulation set-up, cross-probing, visualization, and post-processing of simulation results through tight integration with Virtuoso Analog Design Environment
  • Ensures higher design quality using silicon-accurate, foundry-certified device models shared within Virtuoso Multi-Mode Simulation
