NICE, France Lynguent Inc. and Dolphin Integration SA are to integrate their modeling and simulation solutions and provide them to designers of analog/mixed-signal (AMS) integrated circuits (ICs).
Lynguent’s (Portland, OR) ModLyng Integrated Modeling Environment is a graphical tool for developing AMS behavioral models. ModLyng will create models tuned for Dolphin Integration’s (Grenoble, France) single-kernel SMASH product for mixed-signal simulation. Developers using SMASH with ModLyng should benefit from accelerated development schedules and the tools’ expert feedback for improvements in behavioral simulation.
The integrated tools will expand the deployment of the VHDL-AMS and Verilog-AMS standard hardware description languages (HDLs) supported by ModLyng and SMASH.
