We plan to inspire and amaze you with some of our latest innovations empowered by machine learning. VarMan is a Variation Aware design verification tool that enables chip designers to achieve high sigma for analog blocks, standard cells libraries and memories. Using neural network algorithms, TechModeler creates highly accurate behavioral Verilog-A spice models with a remarkably small number of input samples. Cello is automating standard cell library creation, migration and optimization, exploiting dimensionality reduction algorithms applied to the SPICE model’s variation parameters, to optimize statistical characterization runtime.

Silvaco technology experts will be available to discuss and demo our broad portfolio of TCAD-to-signoff solutions with emphasis on new products and capabilities serving advanced process nodes.

  • Victory Process, Victory Device enabling 2D and 3D TCAD process and device simulation for power devices and automotive applications
  • SmartSpice for advance node circuit simulation
  • Expert for schematic driven layout especially for FPD applications
  • Jivaro & Belledonne for extracted netlist optimization and analysis and SPICE simulation acceleration
  • New solution for full Memory variation analysis enabling Spice simulation, effective fail detection and accurate yield estimation from VarMan
  • IP – I3C, CAN-FD and cloud based IP management platform Xena
  • Standard cell library creation and characterization tools

Silvaco will be co-hosting the Stars of IP party, a premier semiconductor IP social event, on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at Press Club 20 Yerba Buena Lane, San Francisco, CA 94103. Stars of IP is a private, invitation-only event. We encourage interested parties to visit us on the DAC exhibit floor to connect and inquire about a ticket.
