CMC SPICE Models - Standardized Tested Accepted

CMC Models: Your Competitive Edge

The Compact Model Coalition (CMC) Standard Models are developed by the world’s leading SPICE model experts and are used by designers working at the world’s most advanced fabless semiconductor companies, integrated circuit foundries, and integration device manufacturers. These models are implemented by the industry’s top circuit simulation software developers. Standard models along with proven (tested) simulation results ensure that designers can have the assurance that their integrated circuit performance will exactly match the design’s specifications.

Standard Models for the Industry

The CMC program, paid for by CMC members, permits standardized Verilog-language models to be made available to the public. However, Beta Code, which provides the latest model enhancements and bug fixes intended testing by CMC is available only to members that have designated the specific model for funding support. Likewise scripts required to run Quality Assurance (QA) tests of a supplier’s model implementations against the developer’s reference results, thereby validating simulator performance and accuracy, are also available only to CMC members.
