For advanced process design, increasing transistor counts, design complexity, and FinFET 3D parasitics significantly challenge traditional SPICE simulation resulting in weeks-long simulation runs, compromised performance and reduced yields. With the increasing number of PVT corner on advanced processes, it makes designer even harder for verification
Empyrean ALPS™ (Accurate Large capacity Parallel Simulator) is the next-generation high-performance high-accuracy true SPICE simulator. ALPS delivers 100% SPICE accuracy on circuits with over 100M elements. ALPS proprietary Smart Matrix Solving technology provides efficient matrix preconditioning to enable faster convergence and runs 2-3x faster pre-layout and 3-8x faster post layout than other parallel SPICE simulators.
