SMASH is a seamless IC-PCB mixed-signal simulator enabling the development and verification of analog and mixed-signal Silicon IPs and Integrated Circuits (IC) as well as the optimization of application schematics thanks to its unique multi-domain capabilities. Getting quick transient analysis results of large analog circuits without sacrificing accuracy is a decisive stake. Integration of a new analog solver in SMASH is an important step in this direction. It delivers a 2X to 30X performance increase for simulation run time on a single core.
