Take EM Effects Into Account With High-Fidelity Simulations
With the complexity of IC components increasing, EM circuit simulation is critical for accurate and efficient design. Circuit-based EM effects can drastically alter voltage levels and damage semiconductor devices. With EM simulation, designers can account for these effects to avoid costly problems before they happen.

Thermal Analysis Ensures Mission-Critical Success for Ensilica's ASIC
“The data points are bang-on thermal simulations, and the reliability looks good, with a very benign PA power degradation over time. These were not givens before we started our virtual thermal analysis.”
