Advanced Mixed-Signal SoC implementation Solutions to be showcased at VLSI 2011

Magma Design Automation Extends Technology Lead

Chennai, India | Posted on January 4th, 2011

Magma® Design Automation Inc. (NASDAQ: LAVA), a leading provider of chip design software, is showcasing its advanced mixed-signal system-on-chip (SoC) implementation solutions, including the new Talus® 1.2 and Talus Vortex products, at the International Conference on VLSI Design. Magma is the Silicon sponsor of the conference which is being held Jan 2-7, 2011 at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras.

The Magma exhibit will feature the recently announced Talus® 1.2 and Talus Vortex FX. Talus 1.2 is a next-generation integrated circuit (IC) implementation solution that accelerates the design cycle of SoCs by enabling engineers to implement 1 million to 1.5 million cells per day on large designs or blocks of 2 million to 5 million cells - with crosstalk avoidance, advanced on-chip variation (AOCV) and multi-mode multi-corner (MMMC) analysis enabled. Already silicon-proven at the 40-nanometer (nm) node, Talus is currently in use for complex 28-nm designs. With these latest enhancements, Talus is primed to handle the challenges of designing at the 20-nm process node and beyond.

Talus® Vortex FX is the first and only IC implementation solution to fully utilize distributed computing for place and route. Talus Vortex FX's Distributed Smart Sync™ technology represents a significant breakthrough. It enables concurrent implementation management and smart synchronization of very large designs across a network of machines. Talus Vortex FX significantly increases productivity and provides higher capacity, enabling designers to implement multimillion-cell designs flat and to generate 2 million to 5 million cells per day with crosstalk avoidance, AOCV and MMMC analysis enabled - while using existing hardware resources. Talus Vortex FX is the ideal solution for very large, complex advanced-node designs.

"Talus 1.2 delivers the fastest turnaround times, highest capacity and best quality of results for the next generation of IC designs at the 28-nm process node and below," said Rajeev Madhavan, Magma chief executive officer. "Talus Vortex FX, the only distributed P&R technology, catapults Magma's place-and-route far beyond any competitor solution. We're especially pleased to present these new products at VLSI 2011 because the Magma India team has played an instrumental role in their development, delivery and deployment."

"The size and complexity of designs being implemented in India has dramatically changed, catalyzed by the success of ambitious design projects at leading semiconductor companies' India centres," said Alok Mehrotra, managing director, Magma India. "Magma is also taking advantage of the key technical strengths in India to broaden the depth and scope of Magma-India responsibilities and leverage local expertise for Magma customers worldwide."

"Having been associated with the Magma user group meeting and having closely coordinated with the company on its initiatives on campus, I have found Magma to be very innovative and customer driven," said Dr. Kamakoti Veezinathan, general chair, VLSI 2011. "I am happy to see its end-to-end mixed-signal SoC suite of solutions and the next-generation IC implementation solutions - Talus 1.2 and Talus Vortex FX - being showcased at VLSI 2011. This will further reinforce Magma's leadership in digital implementation in India."

Magma's Silicon sponsorship of VLSI 2011 supports fellowships that enable 15 students across India to attend and benefit from VLSI 2011.
