Japanese EDA firm Jedat Inc. has recently announced the availability of its high accuracy and high speed circuit simulator "Cforce". The company's latest offering is aimed at LSI design.

The outstanding feature of Cforce, originally developed based on Jedat's leading-edge simulation technology, is high speed performance and large scale processing. Cforce's advanced circuit simulation engine with multi-threading technology enables increased speed, accuracy and capacity, allowing users to reduce design and verification costs as they make smaller, faster.

Due to the balance of speed, accuracy, and cost, Cforce provides a high cost performance while maintaining the accuracy and compatibility with third-party simulators, enabling customers to obtain a cost performance of 2030X by just replacing the circuit simulators that are currently in use.

The main technology features of the Cforce high speed circuit include a guaranteed compatibility with third-party simulators, integration with C3(CircuitCube) circuit design environment, a proprietary high accuracy solver and a Pseudo-transient�analysis method.

Cforce also includes a multithread technology, support for industry-standard netlist formats, Standard output formats for data analysis. The simulator also ensures compatibility with third-party simulators for I/O format, main analysis feature, model, and analysis result. It supports Verilog-A Verilog-AMS LRMV2.2 and performs DC, transient, AC and Monte Carlo analysis.

Jedat offers the custom LSI design environment "Alpha-SX series" that automates custom LSI design such as analog LSI, power device, LCD driver and memory. With the floor plan function (hierarchical operation, pin assignment, and power supply and bus routing, etc.) and the automatic placement and routing tool for custom layout, Alpha-SX has brought significant improvement to the area where the automation was difficult so far. All of the tools are integrated in the constraint driven environment, and they provide a result in accumulation and reusing the design know-how.
