Cadence is committed to keeping design teams highly productive. A range of support offerings and processes helps Cadence users focus on reducing time-to-market and achieving silicon success. Overview
- Fast, accurate analysis of analog and mixed-signal designs
- PSpice technology at the core for fast and accurate simulations
- Seamless integration with Allegro Design Entry HDL
- TüV SüD “Fit for Purpose – TCL1” certified to meet ISO 26262 automotive functional safety requirements
The Cadence? Allegro? PSpice? System Designer provides complete pre- and post-layout testing for analog and mixed-signal designs with powerful simulation, debugging, design, and analysis utilities.
With its core Cadence PSpice technology, the Allegro PSpice System Designer provides fast and accurate simulations. This advanced analysis package includes utilities for sensitivity analysis, goal-based multi-parameter optimization, component stress and reliability analysis, and Monte Carlo analysis for yield estimation. The parametric plotter analyzes interdependence among parameters and converts simulation data into meaningful results. When combined with Allegro Design Entry HDL, the schematics drawn in Allegro PSpice System Designer can also drive PCB layout, significantly reducing design time and eliminating redrawing errors. It includes a large library of known models and behavioral modeling techniques that make refining the analog/digital interface a straightforward task.
Automotive TCL1 Certified for ISO 26262
The industry’s first PCB design and verification flow to achieve “Fit for Purpose – Tool Confidence Level 1 (TCL1)” certification enables you to meet stringent ISO 26262 automotive safety requirements. The flow includes everything from design authoring to simulation to physical realization and verification using the PSpice, Allegro, and OrCAD? product suites. The high-performance design entry, simulation, and layout editing tools provide an integrated environment for design engineers to validate the safety specifications against individual circuit specifications for design confidence.
