You may have seen Synopsys recent announcement during SNUG:
In a few words, Synopsys is announcing an initiative to accelerate regression testing of mixed-signal SoCs. As part of the initiative, Synopsys is rolling out a SystemVerilog-based methodology, AMS Testbench, and the new VCS® AMS mixed-signal verification solution that incorporates VCS functional verification and the CustomSim™ FastSPICE simulator.
You are going to ask me, what is VCS AMS?
VCS AMS is Synopsys’ advanced mixed-signal verification solution, incorporating VCS functional verification and the CustomSim™ FastSPICE simulator, to deliver advanced functional and low-power verification technologies combined with industry-best performance and capacity for faster mixed-signal SoC regression testing.
What are the capabilities and benefits of VCS AMS?
VCS AMS key capabilities and benefits are:
By leveraging industry-best mixed-signal verification performance and capacity, a proven SystemVerilog-based verification methodology extended for mixed signal and advanced functional and low power verification technologies, VCS AMS provides not only a faster solution of mixed-signal SoC verification but also a superior environment to rapidly deploy constrained-random testbench in a mixed-signal regression environment.
