BANGALORE, INDIA: Magma Design Automation Inc., a provider of chip design software, on Monday announced that iWatt has adopted its Titan facility, a platform that would improve analog design and layout productivity, and automate difficult routing tasks including analog cell layouts and chip-level assembly.
Titan helps designers to set up, route a design in 2 days
iWatt, a developer of integrated circuits (ICs), adopted Titan based on results of an extensive evaluation in which Titan enabled iWatt's designers to set up and route a design in just two days, said a press release.
“iWatt's mission is to exceed our customers' expectations with best-in-class products and services throughout the solutions life cycle,” said X. Jin, vice president of engineering at iWatt. “One of the ways we do that is to utilize innovative technology such as Magma's Titan that shortens the analog design process and reduce power and area requirements.”
Anirudh Devgan, general manager of Magma's custom design business unit, said, “By making analog routing fast, predictable and repeatable, Titan improves routing productivity by a factor of 10, allowing designers to achieve their time-to-market and performance goals.”
Titan Accelerators to improve mixed-signal design productivity
Magma's mixed-signal SoC (system-on-a-chip) design environment includes the comprehensive Titan Mixed-Signal Design Platform and the Titan Accelerators.
Titan Mixed-Signal Platform integrates implementation and verification while delivering first-time-correct, predictable mixed-signal designs, and Titan Accelerators improve analog/mixed-signal design productivity and reuse, the release added.
