NanoSpice

Universal Parallel SPICE

Introduction

NanoSpice is a new generation high-capacity, high-performance parallel SPICE simulator. NanoSpice is designed for the most challenging simulation jobs, such as large post-layout analog circuit simulations that require high capacity, high speed and high accuracy – all at the same time.   

NanoSpice superior parallelization technologies enable efficient circuit simulation with up to 50 million circuit elements. This unique advantage of NanoSpice enables it to deliver better performance than other SPICE simulators for large simulation jobs. NanoSpice also features an innovative parallelization license model that offers a cost-effective choice for designers.
