Time-to-yield at volume pressures for RFICs has never been greater. Getting it right involves taking a system-to-silicon approach. While design-for-yield (DFY) and manufacturability (DFM) approaches are necessary, the large number of simulation licenses they consume can make them prohibitively expensive. GoldenGate’s parallel corner and Monte Carlo licenses enable a cost-effective alternative by providing dedicated simulation licenses for parallel corner and Monte Carlo-based verification at a reasonable price point.
Who will benefit?
RFIC designers who need to verify the yield and manufacturability of their designs.
CAD Managers as Monte Carlo licensing capability augments the existing GoldenGate Quad-Pack strategy giving them the flexibility needed to optimize their simulation budgets.
VPs of Engineering and design managers who want to reduce the risk and cost of taping out RFICs that have not been properly characterized.
GoldenGate includes a suite of automation tools including Job Manager and the Monte Carlo Console that make it easy to set up and manage simulation and data analysis for both block- and system-level performance verification.
GoldenGate with Parallel Corner / Monte Carlo licensing is the only tool that allows both multiple simulations from a single software license (Quad-Pack) and dedicated simulation licenses for corner and Monte Carlo-based verification.
