ADMS uses a single kernel engine that combines the industry-leading ModelSim(R) VHDL/Verilog simulator, AMS HDL language in VHDL-AMS and Verilog-AMS, and Eldo(TM), a transistor-level simulator.
With the adoption of ADMS by the leading IC companies like Toshiba, it further confirms that ADMS has gained world wide acceptance as the best tool for mixed-signal SoC design verification," said Jue-Hsien Chern, vice president, deep submicron (DSM) division, Mentor Graphics.
ADMS gives AMS SoC designers the ability to evaluate performance at the chip level in advance of pushing each block through its own design flow.
With Mentor's extension of ADMS to include Mach TA and Eldo RF, we give designers a technically advanced simulation tool that is unmatched by anyone in the industry.
ADMS with the Mach TA engine has proven in benchmarks on a wireless modem design to be as much as nine times faster than a standard co-simulation solution.
With Eldo RF integrated into the ADMS simulation environment, ADMS can now run in a mode where the modulated steady-state analysis algorithm is used to efficiently handle high-speed digitally modulated signals.
