"Over the last two years, we have successfully used multiple analog/mixed-signal IC tools such as Aeolus , Aether and iwave, from Empyrean. Aeolus’s parallel simulation (multi-threading) capability has significantly improved our design productivity without losing accuracy. After tens of successful tape-outs, the tools are used on every design prior to tape-out. MPS has adopted the tools as its main design platform corporate wide. "
