Cadence unveils next-generation Sigrity X

1 min read

Cadence Design Systems has announced next-generation Sigrity X signal and power integrity (SI/PI) solutions.

Sigrity X features powerful new simulation engines for system-level analysis and includes the massively distributed architecture of the flagship Cadence Clarity 3D Solver.

The Sigrity X tool suite looks to address the size and scalability challenges of system-level simulations faced by technologists in the 5G communications, automotive, hyperscale computing, and aerospace and defence industries. Delivering up to a 10X performance gain for simulation speed and design capacity, it provides a user experience that streamlines setup time for detailed system-level SI/PI analysis by transitioning seamlessly across different analysis workflows.

Additionally, the next-generation release works in tandem with the Clarity 3D Solver and is deeply integrated into Cadence’s Allegro PCB Designer and Allegro Package Designer Plus. This enables PCB and IC package designers to incorporate end-to-end, multi-fabric, multi-board systems (from transmitter to receiver or power source to power sink) for SI/ PI signoff success.

“Cadence is dedicated to solving the most challenging system-level analysis problems with unprecedented speed and accuracy. Sigrity X delivers an extensive and comprehensive SI/PI analysis, optimisation and signoff solution,” said Ben Gu, vice president of multi-physics system analysis in the Custom IC & PCB Group at Cadence. “Sigrity X is the most significant Sigrity breakthrough in the past decade, representing more than a rearchitected engine and transformed user interface. It’s a paradigm shift in customer productivity and SI/PI design insight.”
