Custom IC Design VIRTUOSO CUSTOM DESIGN PLATFORM
Silicon that's right on time. The Virtuoso¢çplatform enables the world's fastest most silicon-accurate analog, custom digital RF, and mixed-signal design.
Today's advanced custom design teams are tackling designs on an order of magnitude more complex than just a few years ago. They must do so while addressing a growing number of physical effects in the package, power grid, interconnect devices, and substrate. However, the design teams efficiency and effectiveness have been fundamentally limited by inadequate design environments.
The Virtuoso platform is a comprehensive system that enables design teams to deliver silicon that meets all specifications, as well as their schedules. It includes a specification-driven environment multi-mode simulation, accelerated layout advanced silicon analysis, and a full-chip integration environment. The Virtuoso platform enables a "meet-in-the-middle" methodology that combines the speed of top-down design with the silicon accuracy of bottom-up design.
