SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- ProPlus Design Solutions, Inc. today announced Dolphin Technology has adopted NanoSpice Giga, a high performance, giga-scale capacity SPICE simulator, for use with 28- and 16-nanometer (nm) design characterization and verification.
NanoSpice Giga has been implemented into Dolphin Technology's design flow and used for both 28nm and 16nm FinFET product designs, and has run large post-layout cases with more than 120-million elements. According to Dolphin Technology, a leading provider of high-performance Semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP), NanoSpice Giga efficiently handles cases like this with a pure SPICE engine that delivers outstanding performance.
Dolphin Technology selected NanoSpice Giga for its ability to handle large-scale designs with a pure SPICE engine that eliminated the concern for inaccuracy. Additionally, Dolphin Technology, after an extensive evaluation of numerous simulator options, determined NanoSpice Giga was easy to use and required no complicated option settings and tuning.
"ProPlus and NanoSpice Giga surpassed our expectations," notes Mo Tamjidi, chief executive officer (CEO) of Dolphin Technology. "Our designs are large and complex, and moving to advanced nodes like 16nm FinFET requires high simulation accuracy. We need a tool such as NanoSpice Giga to efficiently and accurately characterize and verify them."
In addition, ProPlus, the leading technology provider of giga-scale parallel SPICE simulation, SPICE modeling solutions and Design-for-Yield (DFY) applications, and Dolphin Technology have established a long-term alliance to further boost NanoSpice's performance and capacity for faster simulation and larger circuits, such as NanoSpice Giga's ability to handle more than one-billion elements.
"Dolphin Technology pushed the boundaries with NanoSpice Giga to ensure accuracy, reliability and high performance for design characterization and verification," says Dr. Zhihong Liu, executive chairman and CEO of ProPlus Design Solutions. "With NanoSpice Giga's billion-element capacity and fast performance, designers now have new options when selecting a SPICE simulator. We're delighted to have an opportunity to team up with a leading-edge engineering organization like Dolphin Technology."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
