Automatic Integrated Circuit Modeling Spice

Automatic Integrated Circuit Modeling Spice
 
Automatic Integrated Circuit Modeling Spice (AIM-Spice) is a version of SPICE, the most popular analog circuit simulator.

AIM-Spice is a new version of SPICE running under the Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems. AIM-Spice for Windows is capable of displaying graphically the results of a simulation in progress, a feature that allows the operator to terminate a run based on an instant information on intermediate simulation results.

SPICE - The simulator was developed at the University of California, Berkeley, and was first released in 1972. Many scientists at Berkeley and other institutions contributed to the development and improvement in subsequent versions of SPICE.

RealSSD C300

UBM TechInsights Takes a Closer Look at the RealSSD C300

"Inside the RealSSD C300 The controller is a Marvel 88SS9174, which is a relatively new chip. It provides the RealSSD C300 with next generation SATA-3 connectivity at 6Gb/s to accommodate for its extremely fast read speeds that overwhelm SATA-2 (3 Gb/s). This controller has two ARM9 processor cores that operate in parallel to balance the load on the drive, with one core handling host requests and the other handling requests to read and write to the NAND flash devices. The controller uses the Micron DDR3 SDRAM for caching data to more quickly and efficiently manage traffic."
