EDA Solutions for Logic and Mixed Signal Modeling and Simulation
Dolphin Integration's EDA activities started in the late 1980's. At the time, our design activities targeted mixed-signal ASICs, but there was no mixed-signal simulator available on the market. Our mixed-signal single kernel simulation engine was invented then and SMASH was born as the first Missing EDA Link of our MEDAL product line. Commercialized in the early 1990's, SMASH was coupled with third-party schematic capture systems until 2006 when it was complemented with its own schematic entry SLED.
Today, Dolphin Integration's EDA Solutions can be used as:
- The front-end design solution of choice, for any custom design flow, coupled with third-party back-end solutions. Such a setup is ideal for small to medium size companies who target using affordable state-of-the-art design solutions with no compromises on performances or innovation.
- Point-products to complement existing design flows as Missing EDA Links (MEDAL) for specific needs. Such an approach is ideal for companies with corporate agreements for full CAD flows from major vendors who wish to benefit from the innovations in our EDA solutions.
Dolphin Integration's EDA Solutions currently star a hierarchical schematic editor - SLED -, with its mixed-signal simulator - SMASH - along with its extension for power consumption analysis - SCROOGE.
The bundling of the schematic editor SLED and its mixed-signal simulator SMASH into SLASH provides the perfect front-end solution for designing logic and mixed-signal Silicon IP, as well as integrating Systems-on-Chips. As a point product, SLASH brings added value to standard design flows and empowers EDA flows. It delivers innovative features which enable efficient detection of logic and mixed-signal flaws, easing debug while tuning the speed versus accuracy trade-offs.
Model library EMBLEM, Case-study Technical Packages and free tutorials are available with these EDA Solutions to ease the acquaintance with multi-level modeling, so necessary for present days' design and debug.
Founded in 1985, Dolphin Integration is also the provider of low-power Silicon IPs (libraries of standard cells and memories, audio and measurement converters, power regulators...) thanks to SLASH. Such block-busting EDA Solutions deliver the needed flexibility in terms of multi-domain and multi-level modeling, up to the simulation of Virtual Application Boards (VAB) overcoming the boundaries of IC and PCB, to optimize complete subsystem performances.
Thanks to the support of the major hardware description languages (SPICE, Verilog, VHDL, Verilog-AMS and VHDL-AMS) as well as their flexibility and interoperability, our EDA Solutions can address a wide range of applications. Learn more...
