Synopsys Inc. and Oki Electric Co. Ltd disclosed that Oki has standardized on the new HSPICE high-voltage MOS (HVMOS) model for the design of Oki's LCD TV driver SoC.

Oki says it achieved accuracy using the HVMOS model with HSPICE technology, the "Gold Standard" in circuit simulation. The high correlation between device model and silicon enables Oki to accurately design complex, high-voltage drivers that deliver vivid, ultra high-resolution images for large-screen LCD TVs and other advanced integrated circuits in its telecommunications, automotive, computer and consumer product lines.

"We were able to obtain excellent accuracy, performance and convergence using Synopsys' HSPICE technology with the new HVMOS model and the Aurora model parameter extraction tool," said Ichiro Yamamoto, senior manager, design system department in the LSI design division of Oki Electric's silicon solutions company. "Other commercial simulators with HVMOS models typically produced large variations of up to 30 percent when compared with measured data from silicon. This variability made it difficult to fit the model parameters within an acceptable accuracy range, causing several expensive and time-consuming chip re-spins. While correlating silicon within a few percent with the new HSPICE HVMOS model and the Aurora tool, Oki has reduced the model parameter extraction time from several days to two hours," Yamamoto added.
