Key Benefits

  • Ensures design quality with proven Spectre analog and Xcelium digital simulation technologies
  • Supports both the analog design flow use model in the Virtuoso ADE Product Suite as well as the digital verification use model in the Xcelium environment
  • Allows a higher level of abstraction and accelerates simulation to achieve fast turnaround time with extensive language support, such as Verilog, VHDL, SystemVerilog, SystemVerilog Assertion, Verilog-AMS, VHDL-AMS, SystemVerilog Real Number Modeling (RNM)
  • Accelerates simulation of RF circuits at full SPICE accuracy by combining envelope analysis of RF transceivers with digital baseband simulation

The Cadence® Spectre® AMS Designer and Cadence Spectre AMS Connector are mixed-signal simulation and verification solutions for the design and verification of analog, RF, memory, and mixed-signal SoCs. The Spectre AMS Designer contains basic digital features and is a superset of the Spectre AMS Connector. The Spectre AMS Connector, which connects the Spectre circuit simulator and Xcelium digital simulator together is used when advanced digital features are needed, such as UVM, SV Testbench, UPF/CPF, and SystemC®.
