Cadence: analog IC design-for-reliability solution
Cadence Design Systems introduced the Cadence Legato Reliability Solution, the industry’s first software product that meets the challenges of designing high-reliability analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for automotive, medical, industrial, and aerospace and defense applications. The Legato Reliability Solution provides analog designers with the tools they need to manage their design’s reliabilitythroughout the product lifecycle, from initial test through active life through aging.
Based on the golden, trusted Cadence Spectre Accelerated Parallel Simulator and the Cadence Virtuoso custom IC design platform, the LegatoReliability Solution integrates capabilities into an intuitive cockpit to address the reliability concerns of the three phases of the product lifecycle:
Analog defect analysis accelerates analog defect simulation by upto 100X, reducing test cost and eliminating test escapes, the main source of early failure in IC designs
Electro-thermal analysis avoids premature failures due to therma loverstress during the product’s useful life
Advanced aging analysis enables accurate prediction of product wear-out by analyzing aging acceleration due to temperature and process variation.
