Nascentric Supports SpiceVision® PRO from Concept Engineering

Hierarchical Schematic Viewer Integrates with Nascim Simulator

Austin, Texas, March 8, 2006 - Nascentric today announced they will be integrating Nascim® with SpiceVision PRO from Concept Engineering. SpiceVision is a powerful, hierarchical, customizable transistor-level debugger and schematic browser enabling circuit designers to view their SPICE netlists, clearly and easily, thus helping to reduce debugging and design time. Nascim, the next generation in SPICE-accurate, high-performance Fast-SPICE simulation technology, allows design teams to analyze larger and more complex circuits up to ten times faster than previously possible.

"SpiceVision PRO's hierarchical, multi-level viewing capability provides designers with better insight into their design" said Dennis George, director of marketing for Nascentric. "This insight, combined with the speed, accuracy and capacity of Nascim, helps accelerate the simulation and verification time of very large designs. As proponents of inter-operability, we will continue to provide robust and seamless links to schematic viewing and design tools."

"Many of our SpiceVision Pro customers are increasingly facing complexity and integrity challenges with larger circuits and more complicated parasitic structures due to geometry's getting smaller" said Gerhard Angst, CEO, Concept Engineering. "We are pleased to be working with Nascentric to provide a combined solution which will improve debug and development of these large and complex circuits."
