Capabilities

Ansys Redhawk SC (digital) and Ansys Totem (analog) are the world’s leading solutions for SoC power integrity
analysis. You can model supply voltage variations with foundry-verified signoff accuracy and reduce the overall
power noise impact through the package and board. Current density and electromigration analysis are thermal-
aware for both power supply metal and signal interconnect on chip or package layers.

Ansys RedHawk-SC’s diagnostics capabilities identify the sources of dynamic power supply noise through vectored
and vectorless activity that give comprehensive coverage and eliminate voltage escapes and potential frequency
loss. Ansys Path FX provides a variation-aware static timing analysis of critical paths to SPICE accuracy across all
voltages with just a single timing library file.

Ansys RedHawk-SC Electrothermal provides multiphysics analysis for stacked multi-die packages for power integrity,
thermal analysis, and mechanical stress/warpage – all the way from early prototyping to final signoff This high-
capacity multiphysics analysis is in full context of the entire 2.5D/3D system for maximum accu racy and to ensure
system reliability. The co-simulation analysis integrates to system-level tools including Ansys Icepak and Ansys
Slwave.

Ansys_RaptorH has the capacity capacity to model power grids, full custom blocks, spiral inductors, and clock trees.
Its high-speed distributed processing delivers accurate, silicon-proven S-parameter and RLCk models. RaptorH
makes it easy to use either the general purpose H FSS engine or the silicon-optimized RaptorX engine.

simulates human body model (HBM) and charge device model (CDM) events for static and transient
silicon-correlated accuracy. It ensures ESD integrity and reduces debugging turnaround time.
Ansys_IQtem is a comprehensive co-simulation framework for analog, mixed-signal and custom circuit designs and
provides a comprehensive fullÆhip solution for modeling and simulating noise injection, propagation and coupling
through the on-die power grid RLC, substrate RC, and package RLC networks.

Ansys SeaScape infrastructure provides per-core scalability, flexible design data access, instantaneous design bring-
up, MapReduce-enabled analytics, and many other revolutionary capabilities. With unparalleled scalability across
thousands of cores using big data techniques, Ansys RedHawk•SC helps you sign off billion+ instance designs within
a few hours on commodity hardware. No dedicated machines are needed.
