Acceleration of our Mixed-Signal Front-End Design Solutions

Dolphin Integration delivers new releases of its EDA Solutions for front-end design: the schematic editor SLED along with the mixed-signal simulator SMASH.

SLED enables designers to graphically capture and configure their designs. The flexibility of the schematic editor SLED offers the possibility to design true mixed-signal circuits as well as multi-level and multi-physics systems.

For each process node and variant, foundries provide a Process Design Kit (PDK) containing all the files needed for front-end and back-end design. To assist in the integration of PDK files relevant for front-end design, SLED 2.4 delivers a PDK import feature enabling fast and easy generation of a SLED front-end PDK. SLED 2.4 also delivers ergonomic and ease of use enhancements to constantly improve the overall user experience and productivity.

SMASH is renowned in the analog design community as a state-of-the art mixed-signal simulator with multi-language and multi-level simulation capabilities. Staying on the cutting edge of simulator performance, SMASH 6.4 offers 3 major steps forward:

  • Thanks to a new analog solver, SMASH 6.4 shortens simulations of big analog circuits from weeks to days (see Figure 1).
  • Loading of logic circuits is up to 2 times faster than previously thanks to the integration of a new compiler.
  • Increased speed and reduced memory footprint under Linux with a native SMASH application.
