DICE
performance

Today, without GPU parallelization implementation, DICE allows reaching speedups above x150 compared to SPICE simulators with an equivalent accuracy.

A 15 days simulation is reduced to 2,5 hours.

Higher performances are expected when DICE will run on GPUs.

Use case

 

1000 MOS cascaded with a constant voltage on the first gate.
Analysis: Transient with fixed steps.

 

Benchmark

Benchmark performed with one of the top-3 EDA vendors SPICE simulator.

Speed

DICE Learning time: 324s


* Estimated

Accuracy

  • SPICE and DICE provide identical results with 4 digits.
  • DICE systematically checks that all Kirchhoff laws are satisfied with a 10-6 accuracy.
