Cadence Eyes System Analysis Market

SAN FRANCISCO, Apr. 02, 2019 – 

Cadence Design Systems is moving beyond semiconductor EDA and expanding into the system analysis market, initially with an electromagnetic field solver but with plans to add other tools with the capability to analyze complete systems.

Cadence's new 3D Solver is the first product in its Clarity line of system analysis tools. The tool boasts electromagnetic simulation capability that delivers up to 10 times the performance of Cadence's previous-generation field solver. The Clarity 3D Solver also offers a distributed multiprocessing architecture that gives it "virtually unlimited capacity" along with "gold-standard accuracy," according to Cadence.

Like all EDA vendors, Cadence is keen to expand beyond the relatively stagnant market for EDA tools and grow into adjacent areas where its technology may find broader adoption. Clarity 3D Solver was announced by Cadence CEO Lip-Bu Tan at the company's annual CDNLive users' group event Tuesday in San Jose.

According to Brad Griffin, a product management director at Cadence, the architecture of Clarity 3D Solver allows the tool to be run across hundreds of CPUs optimized for both cloud and on-premises distributed computing. This architecture gives the product the capability to work on 3D structures beyond a chip to address packaging, boards, connectors, and cables, providing analysis of the EM properties of the entire system.
