Project Overview

LEADER is IBM's latest effort at meeting the increasing need for fast and accurate circuit simulation in high-speed ASIC and microprocessor designs. Unlike traditional circuit closed simulation tools, LEADER provides an open circuit simulation framework. By utilizing a modular software architecture and incorporating state-of-the-art algorithms from the numerical analysis and applied mathematics communities, LEADER gives customers flexible trade-offs between accuracy and speed that can based on the criticality of the circuit. Even in its most accurate mode, LEADER is significantly faster than traditional SPICE without any loss of accuracy.

Major applications of LEADER include transistor level timing analysis, noise analysis, power analysis and library characterization.
