Agilent Technologies Inc has shipped the first release of its SPICE modeling tools obtained through the acquisition of Accelicon Technologies in February.

The tools, Model Builder Program (MBP), Model Quality Assurance (MQA) and Advanced Model Analysis (AMA), are now an integral part of Agilent's device-modeling portfolio.

MBP 2012.07 offers turnkey solutions for SPICE model extraction. A set of features make it suitable for high-volume, high-efficiency model generation at foundries and integrated device manufacturers, and for SPICE library customization at fabless companies to enable concurrent circuit designs.

MQA 2012.07 serves as a platform for performing automated, comprehensive and systematic SPICE model qualification. It is the de facto industry-standard tool for SPICE library signoff at foundries and IDMs, and for SPICE library acceptance in design houses.

AMA 2012.07 meets the need for SPICE model and layout-versus-schematic covalidation for cutting-edge technologies where layout-dependent effects have become prevalent due to performance-enhancing processing techniques.

Agilent claims its full device-modeling portfolio consisting of IC-CAP/WaferPro, MBP, MQA and AMA is the industry's only high-quality turnkey solution for silicon modeling, from measurement to data analysis and from model generation to model qualification.

Agilent's new MBP, MQA and AMA 2012.07 solutions are now available for download. MBP and MQA each have a starting price of $28,000. AMA pricing starts at $47,000.

The Model Builder Program provides both automation and flexibility for high-volume, high-throughput device modeling. MBP includes built-in characterization and modeling capabilities and an open interface for modeling strategy customization.
