Variations in Analog Design

I've just seen a press release in EDN about a new tool for analysis of the impact of parametric variations on the performance of circuits, specially oriented to analog design. This new tool from Solido Design Automation seems a quite potent toolbox, very related to what you can do with UTMOST, but more oriented to integration in a simulation environment. This tool promises to be able to determine the best corners from foundry data, run sensitivity analysis, etc....

If anybody has tested it, I'd like to read first-hand opinions....

Hey Rodrigo. Glad to see your note on Solido. First let me provide a disclaimer - I work there! We'll be happy to provide you with more information on our product and its capabilities. I'm looking forward to hearing first hand opinions from your readers. We've got plenty of case stories that we could share too - our statistical variation analysis tools have been used in production designs from 180 nm down to 45 nm by several tier 1 companies.

thnx
