Another New Analog Player

On the heels of BDA’s characterization tool, and consistent with increased activity in the analog space, yet another analog tool company is starting up: G-Analog. And it would appear that the essence of their differentiation lies in three letters: GPU.

They’re taking on some of the compute-intensive aspects of analog/SPICE, starting with GChar for characterization and Monte Carlo/OCV analysis. And they’re harnessing the massively parallel capabilities of GPUs to achieve what they say is up to a 50x speed advantage over “traditional” tools.

They’re targeting small- to medium-sized companies that tend not to have the large server farms necessary to accelerate analysis on traditional machines. Instead, you can use graphics accelerator cards. These actually aren’t cheap – G-Analog says that a high-end one is around $3500 (which can actually buy you a lot of server, although doesn’t require the floorspace); each GChar license allows up to four such cards.

You can find more in their release.
