Minimos-NT has highly efficient numerical multi-core solvers; however, simulation time largely depends on data complexity and hardware. For example, using the highly efficient iterative linear solver (single core), a single event transient (SET) simulation of an inverter chain takes less than one hour. A single event upset (SEU) simulation on an SRAM (approx 250k mesh nodes) takes less than 4 hours. The butterfly curve for static noise margin can be estimated even faster. (You will notice this is similar or even faster than other products available on the market.)
Depending on your needs, you can do further analyses — GTS Framework has the tools for you:
- Visualization of quantities in 2D/3D device view (electrostatic potential, current density, etc.)
- Plotting electric output (current, node-voltages, etc.)
- Post-processing (Vth, DIBL, sub-threshold slope, etc.)
- Statistical data analysis (mean value, standard deviation, etc)
Modern user interfaces can bring significant gain in productivity, provided that flexibility and power of textual interfaces is maintained. GTS Framework's hierarchical interface, comprehensive set of templates, and the integrated work flow functions provide unprecedented ease of use, to considerably increase design productivity.
