NanoSpice

Generic Parallel SPICE Simulator

Introduction

NanoSpice™ is a new generation high-capacity, high-performance parallel SPICE simulator, designed for challenging simulation jobs, such as large post-layout analog circuit simulations requiring capacity, speed and accuracy measurements simultaneously. NanoSpice’s superior parallelization technologies handle generic circuit simulation with up to 50M+ circuit elements. This invaluable advantage to NanoSpice, enables it to deliver better performance than contrasting parallel SPICE simulators in large simulation jobs. NanoSpice also has an innovative, efficient and cost-effective parallelization license model.
