AgO Inc adds feasibility analysis to AnXplorer analog design optimization tool

January 10th 2011 – AgO Inc, a technology leader in analog and RF circuit optimization software, announces the immediate availability of AnXplorer 2010.12. The new release brings enhanced productivity to analog IC design teams through its new feasibility analysis capability which can rapidly identify a feasible region for circuit design variables.

The new feasibility analysis mode identifies regions of the design space where all circuit sizing rules are met. This rapidly eliminates those parts of the design space which result in unstable circuits. Since only DC operating point simulations are required the mode is computationally efficient and fast. By … Read More → "AgO Inc adds feasibility analysis to AnXplorer analog design optimization tool"
