FMF Models: Use Cases

FMF Models serve several important functions in product design as well as sales aide and acceleration to design wins.

FMF Models in the PCB Verification Process:

As engineers design components into their products, the availability of simulation models allows design verification prior to prototyping. This speeds product development and reduces the time to volume component purchases.

Models in the Component Selection Process:

A functional model can be used by engineers to help determine the suitability of a component for a particular design by providing a better understanding of its function, performance, and interface. The availability of a model will reduce the demand for application engineering support.

Models in the Product Specification Development Process:

During product specification FMF can create models based on the IC company's marketing specification. The models can be given to key customers to verify that the proposed new IC meets their requirements.

FMF Models in IC Development Process:

One of the several ways FMF Models deliver value to our semiconductor customers is in the use of FMF behavioral models and testbenches as part of their IC development process. The model is created to the product specification. The same test bench is used to check the RTL code of the part being developed for its conformance to that specification.

FMF Models for Behavioral IP:

FMF behavioral models can be used by Intelectual Property vendors as a means of allowing prospective customers to evaluate the functionality of proprietary cores without giving away the valuable RTL code. Behavioral models also speed customers' verification of their chip designs.
