Building upon the foundation of the Cadence® Spectre® Circuit Simulation Platform, the Spectre X Simulator is Cadence's third-generation SPICE simulator for circuits from complex analog, RF, and mixed-signal blocks, to custom IC and subsystems. The Spectre X Simulator delivers best-in-class single-core simulation and provides scalable performance and capacity. Using the same infrastructure technology as the Spectre Circuit Simulator and Spectre Accelerated Parallel Simulator (APS), the Spectre X Simulator provides the same golden simulation results that designers have trusted for more than 20 years. These designs may use millions of transistors and passive components along with billions of parasitic elements.
