Advanced technology nodes Process variability becomes the key challenge for analog IC designers to easily reach targeted specifications while controlling design cycle time and production yields. Designer needs to run thousands or more Monte Carlo simulations. Fast Monte Carlo becomes necessary but unfortunately not sufficient!
Faster Monte Carlo tools able to have the same accuracy as Brute Monte Carlo, High-Sigma analysis equivalent to hundred thousands or millions of runs, True corners extraction and local variability analysis that can treat huge number of parameters become an important piece of the design flow.
ICLys is a new generation of tool providing efficient and reliable solutions to analog, mixed-signal and RF designers. It proposes a comprehensive suite of analysis tools that allow the designer to accurately address statistical design and to make the right design decision upfront. Its user-friendly framework for data loading or viewing statistical analysis results facilitates designer’s day-to-day tasks. ICLys FMC is unique on the market and we belive it will be considered as the new Monte Carlo standard.
The designer doesn't need anymore to be a sharp statistician to understand and optimize the impact of process variations on its design.
