SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- February 12, 2013

Berkeley Design Automation, Inc., provider of the world’s fastest nanometer
circuit verification, today announced that I&C Technology Co., Ltd., a
developer of mobile TV SoCs, has selected the Analog FastSPICE (AFS) Platform
for analog, RF, and mixed-signal circuit verification.

“I&C Technology's multi-mode, multi-band mobile TV SoCs operate on multiple
standards and have stringent performance and power verification requirements,”
said Sangyoub Lee, Ph.D., Vice President, RF/Analog R&D Center at I&C
Technology. “We selected the Analog FastSPICE Platform because it delivers
nanometer SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster than traditional SPICE exceeding our
requirements for verification and characterization of our high-performance
analog, RF CMOS, and mixed-signal circuits for mobile TV applications.”

The Analog FastSPICE Platform provides the world’s fastest circuit
verification for nanometer analog, RF, mixed-signal, and custom digital
circuits. Foundry certified to 20nm, the AFS Platform delivers nanometer SPICE
accuracy 5x-10x faster on a single core and 2x-4x faster on multicore systems
versus any other simulator. For circuit characterization, the AFS Platform
includes the industry’s only comprehensive silicon-accurate device noise
analysis and delivers near-linear performance scaling with the number of
cores. For large circuits, it delivers >10M-element capacity, the fastest
near-SPICE-accurate simulation, and the fastest, most accurate mixed-signal
simulation. Available licenses include AFS circuit simulation, AFS Transient
Noise Analysis, AFS RF Analysis, AFS Co-Simulation, AFS AMS, and AFS Nano
SPICE.

“We are excited that I&C Technology selected the Analog FastSPICE Platform for
their analog, RF CMOS, and mixed-signal verification flow,” said Ravi
Subramanian, president and CEO of Berkeley Design Automation. “Mobile TV
platforms require high-performance and low-power radio and baseband circuit
architectures that pose a tremendous verification challenge. I&C Technology’s
selection of the AFS Platform validates once again the value BDA brings to
semiconductor companies serving the mobile and consumer electronics markets.”
