The industry proven, most advanced circuit verification platform for analog-centric circuits

 

Eldo Platform is the industry proven, most advanced circuit verification platform for analog-centric circuits offering differentiated solution for reliability verification and comprehensive circuit analysis & diagnostics for analog, RF and mixed-signal circuits in automotive, industrial, medical and other mission-critical analog-centric ICs. More than 200 companies rely on Eldo Platform for safety, reliability and quality verification of ICs used in application-specific and power management applications. The Eldo Platform includes Eldo Classic, Eldo Premier and Eldo RF engines to address the needs of analog-centric ICs.

 

Eldo Platform delivers the required SPICE accuracy and performance to design and verify the complex Automotive IC design using the BCD technology and address their design and verification challenges efficiently and in a timely manner.

 

Reliability verification is made possible with Eldo’s industry-proven advanced aging simulations to predict reliability issues due to circuit degradation, electro-thermal simulation to analyze thermal impact due to power dissipation and Safe operating area simulation and analysis to detect dangerous operating condition violations over the lifetime of the IC.

Foundry-certified by the major foundries, Eldo’s extensive device model libraries and “golden” accuracy make it the simulator of choice for CPU-intensive applications such as digital cell characterization. For silicon-accurate characterization and better yield estimation, advanced statistical verification in Eldo provides smart, incremental analyses with acceleration techniques.

Incorporated in Questa ADMS, it offers complete support for SPICE and all standard HDL and HDL-AMS languages to cover mixed-signal needs using Questa technology. The solution also offers a common verification platform for analog, digital and mixed-signal flows with unified coverage-driven, flexible and easy-to-use design reconfiguration mixed-signal verification.
