Why DICE?

DICE answers the massive need of simulation in microelectronics.

Simulation is key for the verification process, which is a mandatory step, and the only way to ensure performance and quality before production.

 
Simulation allows avoiding
Respins
multi-million dollar production run
Poor yield
impacts production costs
Overdesign
impacts performance and costs
Today, the simulation time is increasing, mainly due to
Increasing variations with smaller process nodes
Increasing analog content in ICs
Increasing number of simulation runs to match quality objectives
 

As a consequence, simulation can take up to several weeks. It is a bottleneck for electronic component manufacturers’ growth.

Alternatives in this situation are to either delay the time to market, or introduce risks on product costs or quality. DICE provides a solution to this dilemma.
