SANTA CLARA, CA, Jan 23 (MARKET WIRE) -- Simucad Design Automation (Simucad), a leading provider of Analog, Mixed-Signal and RF Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools, today announced that Elpida Memory Inc. (Elpida), a leading global manufacturer of Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) silicon chips, has standardized on SmartSpice for its analog simulation needs. SmartSpice provides the highest performance and simulation accuracydemanded by today's ultra deep sub-micron technologies. The powerfulmultithreaded technology built into SmartSpice delivers the fastestsimulation of large and complex multi-million transistor circuits with trueSPICE accuracy. "After an extensive evaluation period, SmartSpice was found to exceed ourexpectations in speed, convergence and accuracy, and outperformed ourcurrent simulation solutions," Takao Adachi, CTO of Elpida said. "Adoptionof multithreaded SmartSpice allows Elpida engineers to significantlyshorten design time and introduce products to market faster and cheaper." "Our innovative and cost-effective unlimited licensing model is how EDAsoftware should be licensed," said Dr. Ivan Pesic, President and CEO ofSimucad. "Years of research have made SmartSpice the fastest and mostaccurate Analog simulator on the market. Companies can now standardize on asingle simulator and replace the myriad of traditional and lookup-tablebased simulators currently in use." About Elpida Memory, Inc.
