NanoSpice™

Generic Parallel SPICE Simulator

Introduction

NanoSpice™ is a new generation high-capacity, high-performance parallel SPICE simulator, designed for the most challenging simulation jobs, such as large post-layout analog circuit simulations requiring capacity, speed and accuracy measurements simultaneously. NanoSpice’s superior parallelization technologies handle generic circuit simulation with up to 50M+ circuit elements. This invaluable advantage unique to NanoSpice, enables it to deliver better performance than contrasting parallel SPICE simulators in large simulation jobs. NanoSpice also has an innovative, efficient and cost-effective parallelization license model.
