Siemens announced that its verification of AMS circuits are now qualified for early design starts on Samsung Foundry’s new 3nm Gate All Around (GAA) process technology.

The GAA is engineered to reduce total silicon size, use less power, and improve performance.

The certification allows customers to verify early-stage AMS designs by using the Analog FastSPICE (AFS) platform.

Per a company press release, the AFS platform is now enabled in Samsung Foundry’s device models and design kits. The AFS platform delivers nanometer-scale SPICE accuracy while verifying analog, radio frequency (RF), mixed-signal, memory, and custom digital circuits faster than with traditional SPICE simulators.
