Variation-aware design and characterization, Siemens says, has become fundamental in developing semiconductor products optimised for power, performance, and cost. In analogue, mixed-signal, memory, and standard cell design, the verification software needs to deliver very high confidence in the simulation results while avoiding time- and resource-intensive analysis methods. Solido‘s machine learning-based, variation-aware design and characterization software is employed to deliver the required confidence while reducing time and resources and delivering opimised data visualization.
Solido’s machine learning-based products are, Siemens continues, currently used in production at over 40 companies. The acquisition of Solido further expands Mentor’s analogue/mixed-signal (AMS) verification portfolio. The terms of the transaction are not disclosed. Siemens expects to close the transaction in early December 2017.
