From Atoms to Systems: smart software solutions before and after manufacturing make all the difference. Stop by the Silvaco booth to learn more about our latest innovations:

  • In partnership with Samsung Foundry, Silvaco now brings a suite of proven hard and soft IP to SoC engineers world-wide which includes wired and high-speed interfaces, analog and mixed-signal blocks and advanced security functions.
  • New Viola 10X™ Characterization solution saves days of simulation time.
  • Silvaco’s Analog Custom Design tool suite integrates ClioSoft’s SOS7 design management and multi-site team collaboration software for designers who use Silvaco’s Gateway™ schematic editor and Expert™ hierarchical IC layout editor to develop analog and mixed-signal designs for process nodes down to 5nm.

Silvaco technology experts will be available to discuss and demo our broad portfolio of smart solutions with emphasis on new products and capabilities serving advanced process nodes:

  • SIPware™ design IP for IoT, Mobile and Automotive ICs applications with hundreds of production-proven cores, including I3C, CAN-FD, and AMBA-based subsystems, plus the addition of new hard and soft IP from Samsung Foundry
  • Xena© for enterprise and cloud IP management with fingerprinting features for IP compliance
  • Gateway™, Expert™, Guardian™ for schematic driven physical layout with scripting and native DRC/LVS for designer productivity
  • Jivaro™, Belledonne™ for optimization and analysis of extracted netlists and dramatic acceleration of SPICE simulation while maintaining accuracy
  • VarMan™ for high sigma analysis of analog blocks, standard cells libraries, memories with accelerated SPICE simulation, failure detection and accurate yield estimation
  • SmartSpice™, SmartSpice Pro™ for fast circuit simulation of advanced nanometer-nodes
  • TechModeler™ for creating highly accurate behavioral Verilog-A compact simulation models of novel devices, from a small number of input samples
  • Cello™, Viola™ for accelerated standard cell library creation and characterization of advanced FinFET nodes as well as mature technologies
  • Victory™ for 2D and 3D TCAD process and device simulation of nanometer CMOS, power devices, automotive applications and atomistic simulation of nano-meter scale devices such as quantum dots

SMART Design Pavilion Presentations by Silvaco

Silvaco is giving two presentations in the SMART Design Pavilion at ES Design West on the Exhibit Floor:

  • Next Generation SoC Design: From Atoms to Systems.  Babak Taheri, CTO and EVP of Products, will show the requirements for next-generation SoC design to address the span from architecture to device physics.  The current state-of-the-art and what are the new challenges that need to be addressed will be discussed. The presentation takes place at the Meet the Experts Theater, SMART Design Pavilion, Tuesday, July 09, 11:35am to 12:05p.m
  • High-Sigma Statistical Analysis: What is the Need and How to Deploy?  Graham Bell, Sr. Director of Marketing, will discuss the conflicting requirements for high-sigma statistical analysis which include a wide range of digital measurements, management of a huge number of circuit parameters, and a very limited number of simulations while keeping precision at a high level. The presentation takes place at the Meet the Experts Theater, SMART Design Pavilion, Thursday, July 11, 2:05pm to 2:35pm.

HOT PARTY at ES Design West
Join in the legendary Heart of Technology—HOT PARTY sponsored by Jim Hogan. It will take place at the John Colins Lounge Tuesday, July 09 5:30pm to 10:00pm near the Convention Center. This year's event benefits the SEMI Foundation. The Foundation supports education and career awareness in high technology. The event is free of charge, however, a suggested charitable donation of $20.00 collected onsite is requested. To register your attendance at the event and get additional details visit
