Berkeley Design Automation to Present Paper with Forza Silicon and Exhibit at the TSMC 2013 Open Innovation Platform® Forum

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 1, 2013 — Berkeley Design Automation, Inc., provider of the world’s fastest nanometer circuit verification, today announced, that the company will be co-presenting a paper and exhibiting at the TSMC 2013 Open Innovation Platform® (OIP) Ecosystem Forum.

WHO: Berkeley Design Automation, Inc.

WHAT: Paper on EDA/IP/Services Track and Exhibit

Paper: An Efficient and Accurate Sign-Off Simulation Methodology for High-Performance CMOS Image Sensors;
Authors: Berkeley Design Automation & Forza Silicon

Exhibit: Berkeley Design Automation will highlight how its AFS Platform provides the world’s fastest circuit verification for nanometer analog, RF, mixed-signal, memory, and custom digital circuits. Foundry certified to 20nm, 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 >10M-element capacity and the fastest mixed-signal simulation. For silicon-accurate characterization it includes the industry's only comprehensive full-spectrum device noise analysis and a high-productivity Analog Characterization Environment—both of which deliver 5x-10x speedup over alternative approaches. For memory and other array-based circuits, AFS Mega™ delivers silicon-accurate simulation with >100M element capacity.

WHERE: San Jose Convention Center, San Jose, CA, Booth # 315

WHEN: Tuesday, October 1st, 2013 (Paper is from 13:00-13:30)
