About ProMOST

ChipDesignWorks' ProMOST is a single transistor optimizer targeted towards analog and RF circuit designers, mainly for CMOS technologies. ProMOST lets you quickly:

ProMOST supports many transistor models, including many MOS11, PSP and BSIM models. ProMOST is developed for use in industry, and as such currently used within a number of major electronics companies and design houses worldwide. The ProMOST software runs on Linux machines, either stand-alone or integrated in Cadence.
