Solido provides fast, accurate variation-aware and characterization design software, enabling customers to deliver the most competitive products while reducing time to market and risk of respins.

Solido Variation Designer boosts SPICE simulator efficiency by dramatically reducing the number of simulations for Monte Carlo, PVT, and variation debugging while increasing design coverage. Variation Designer is certified by leading foundries and is used by top semiconductor companies to design memory, standard cell, analog/RF, and custom digital ICs in nanometer and low power processes.

Solido ML Characterization Suite reduces standard cell, memory, and I/O  characterization time and resources, while delivering production-accurate Liberty models. It uses machine learning technology, which adaptively models the full characterization space, boosting accuracy where needed to achieve production targets, while saving most of the simulation in other areas.
