How eda companies enhancing analogue design beyond Spice simulation. By Graham Pitcher

With the continuing emphasis on digital design, observers could be excused for believing that analogue design had, somehow, ‘gone away’. But the real world is different and, as we’ve said many times before, it’s an analogue world.
Mike Demler, a product marketing manager in Synopsys’ analogue and mixed signal group, said: “We’ve been going through a consumer electronics revolution. People say it’s a digital revolution, but devices like mobile phones are enabled by analogue electronics.”
This enabling technology is often designed at the transistor level.
