Democratization of digital methodologies for AMS verification with Symphony Pro

Mixed-signal designs are evolving and driving next generation applications. However, analog and mixed-signal verification methodologies have not caught up with the same pace. There is a need for more advanced, standard methodologies for scalable, reusable, and coverage-driven mixed-signal verification. RNM shows a path forward to take advantage of digital-centric verification infrastructure such as UVM but needs thoughtful consideration. Low-power verification of mixed-signal designs is becoming increasingly important, and power-aware methodologies need to evolve to address these verification challenges. Symphony Pro, combined with AFS, Questa and Visualizer, offers a comprehensive and robust solution to address these challenges with a unified mixed-signal verification solution.

Introducing Symphony Pro

Symphony™, Siemens EDA’s mixed-signal platform, offers an average of 2 to 5X speed-up over traditional mixed-signal simulators while maintaining SPICE accuracy. It is fully configurable to work with all industry-standard digital solvers and provides robust debug capabilities within an easy-to-use environment. Symphony is the only mixed-signal simulator that offers a unique machine learning-based variation-aware mixed-signal solution with Solido™.

And now we are introducing Siemens’s new Symphony Pro platform - built on the proven performance of Symphony and Questa Visualizer™ - to augment the support for digital centric mixed-signal verification methodologies. Symphony Pro extends the rapid deployment of industry-standard Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) and UPF-driven low-power techniques into the mixed-signal domain by offering exceptionally fast simulation performance in a unified environment for unprecedented throughput and capacity.
