Magma’s FineSim technology consists of two products: FineSim SPICE and FineSim Pro. Both productsshare the same binary and executable, as well as option sets.
????? FineSim? SPICE is a true SPICE engine that has a single matrix solver and unique capability of solving the
SPICE matrix over multiple CPUs/machines (Multi-CPU Technology) with linear scaling and true SPICE
accuracy. This SPICE technology is well suited for sensitive analog blocks such as PLLs, ADCs, Charge
Pumps, and other traditionally difficult circuits for SPICE.
FineSim Pro is a full-chip circuit-level simulator best suited for the design and analysis of mixed signal SoCs.
FineSim Pro contains a full SPICE engine as well as a complete fast-SPICE engine, which provides
designers with maximum flexibility for accuracy versus speed trade-offs. The SPICE engine in FineSim Pro
is the same technology found in FineSim SPICE. FineSim Pro can analyze circuits in the context of larger
analog subsystems or mixed signal full chip designs.
At the end of this workshop the student should be able to:
? Invoke FineSim including general command for Multi-CPU; parallel on local host/LSF
? Know basic FineSim simulation controls
? Have knowledge of FineSim simulation setup(input/output)
? Do post-layout simulation with FineSim
? Realize HSIM and NanoSim migration
? Use FineSim circuit check and Fscript feature
? Implement FineSim Cosimulation
? Run FineSim through ADE
? Invoke FineSim MonteCarlo and IR/EM Analysis
Analog designers and engineers who perform circuit simulation and analysis at the transistor level.
Experience with UNIX basic commands and basic text editor. (e.g. gedit)
