Animate is Pulsic’s automated analog circuit layout tool and Animate Preview is being offered under the ‘freemium’ business model which provides the basic functionality for free but allows users to pay for upgrades and additional features.
Animate Preview gives engineers physical information about their analog circuit while they develop their schematic. It delivers visualizations and area estimates of the circuit. Pulsic claims that Animate Preview increases the speed of design iteration by providing feedback on decisions quickly.
Animate Preview is available for free with online help desk and live chat support services. Users can upgrade to Animate Preview Plus.
Animate Preview automatically recognizes common analog circuit topologies – such as current mirrors and differential pairs – then places devices to achieve matching symmetry and optimal flow of the critical paths in the circuit. Animate Preview obeys DRC and process rules to give physical previews of the design.
Animate Preview appears as a window embedded in the existing schematic editor and displays results in real-time. A GUI is available for detailed control of placement constraints and topologies if required.
