Innoveda/Intusoft announce circuit simulator agreement

29 August 2001 Design Automation

Innoveda has announced an agreement with Intusoft in which it will provide circuit simulation capabilities for Innoveda's new DxDesigner product suite. Intusoft, a designer of circuit simulation and test software, will deliver proprietary algorithms and simulation technology for DxDesigner, scheduled to be released soon. The agreement expands upon the existing OEM relationship between the two companies.

According to the company, DxDesigner redefines front-end design engineering through a process of 'design definition' that combines four key process technologies: component information systems; design entry and sharing; simulation and planning; and enterprise connectivity within a single, comprehensive solution. This enables better communication among geographically dispersed engineering and manufacturing teams, resulting in more efficient component selection, less post-layout rework, fewer design defects, and shorter prototype-debugging cycles.

According to Rick Almeida, Innoveda Vice President of Marketing, "DxDesigner stresses the need for simulation and planning as one of the critical components in design definition. To meet the simulation requirements of analog and mixed-signal circuits, the DxAnalog module will incorporate Intusoft's interactive SPICE engine, as well as the IntuScope5 waveform analyser, SPICE modelling program, and extensive model libraries. Together, these tools will enable Innoveda customers to run Monte Carlo, optimisation, sweep, and fault analyses on analog and mixed-signal PCB and IC designs, as well as on multidiscipline systems."

Says Larry Meares, Intusoft President, "Circuit simulation has become increasingly important as manufacturers strive to narrow time between new product introductions while retaining quality and decreasing costs. The complexity of today's systems demands stringent simulation and verification testing that can only be met with the latest technology. Our expanded relationship will help deliver that capability to Innoveda's customers."
