Paper Abstract

Software-based circuit simulators had a ten-fold speed improvement in the last 15 years. Despite this they are not fast enough to cost- effectively deal with current VLSI circuits. In this paper we describe the current status of the ABACUS circuit simulator project, which takes advantage of both a dedicated hardware to speed up circuit simulation and a new methodology, where each parallel processor behaves like a circuit element.
