Analog FastSPICE™ is the world’s fastest nanometer circuit verification platform for analog, RF, mixed-signal, and custom digital circuits. Over 100 companies use the AFS Platform for their toughest verification challenges  on circuits such as high-speed I/O, PLLs, ADCs/DACs, CMOS image sensors, RFICs, and memories.

Foundry certified to 14/16nm, the AFS Platform delivers nanometer SPICE accuracy 5x-10x faster than traditional SPICE and 2x-6x faster than parallel SPICE simulators. For large circuits the AFS Platform delivers >10M-element capacity and the fastest mixed-signal simulation. For silicon-accurate characterization it includes the industry's only comprehensive full-spectrum device noise analysis and a high-productivity Analog Characterization Environment—both of which deliver 5x-10x speedup over alternative approaches. For memory and other array-based circuits, AFS Mega™ delivers silicon-accurate simulation with >100M element capacity.
