Accelerate analog circuit design with fast physical feedback

Fast layout previews with Animate Preview help you to make better design decisions in less time

Early layout feedback from your schematic

Animate Preview shows you the physical effects of your design decisions in seconds.

Animate Preview obeys DRC and process rules to give you an early and accurate layout preview of your circuit that is automatically created and updated as you edit the schematic.

Layout preview from schematic

Optimize your design for layout 

Animate Preview uses the parameters in your schematic and considers multiple layout topologies to create layout previews with the best possible packing.

Animate Preview helps you to explore device parameters – width, m-factor, and the number of fingers to achieve optimum device packing and layout area.

“Animate provided excellent results equal to using traditional approaches but in far less time”
