Cadence® PSpice® Advanced Analysis Option is a circuit simulation software which enables engineers to create virtual prototypes of designs and maximize circuit performance. It combines Sensitivity, Monte Carlo, Smoke (stress) analysis, Parametric analysis and an Optimizer to provide an expanded environment to take design analysis beyond simulation. Used in conjunction with the core PSpice simulation engine the PSpice® Advanced Analysis Option maximizes design performance, yield, cost-effectiveness and reliability.
Advanced Analysis helps address the following engineer’s concerns:
The design might work correctly in the "lab," but can we go to production with it?
• Will it operate correctly -
◦ Over manufacturing tolerance variations?
◦ Outside of temperature range?
◦ Over its full operating range?
◦ With age?
• Are the individual components being over-stressed?
• Will it fail in test or in the field?
• Are there critical sensitivities that will cause problems in the future?
• Which components will most likely fail during manufacturing?
• Automatic performance optimization algorithms to improve design quality and engineer productivity
• Find optimum combinations of component values, automatically simulate, evaluate results and adjust component values to reach performance requirements
• Retarget existing designs with new goals without modifying the layout
• Go beyond just debugging waveforms—use PSpice@ Advanced Analysis Option to help you optimize your design, improve your design reliability and manufacturing yield and reduce the cost of components.
• Tight integration with schematic tools for improved accuracy
