Tired of waiting for your SPICE simulations to complete?
My colleague Rick Poore will be presenting IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC) paper #20-3 about his work on "GPU-Accelerated Time-Domain Circuit Simulation" in San Jose at 11:05AM on Wednesday, September 16th.
Time-domain circuit simulation is dominated by transistor model evaluation. A modern graphics processing unit (GPU) is a parallel, high performance computer also suitable for non-graphics tasks (General Purpose GPU or GPGPU). Simulation is sped up by 3-6x by moving transistor evaluation to a GPU. Implications for writing transistor models for good GPU performance are discussed.
