SAN JOSE, USA: Magma Design Automation Inc. announced that the Titan mixed-signal platform has been validated to support the interoperability and accuracy requirements of the IPL 1.0 Interoperable Process Design Kit (iPDK) standard.
The Interoperable PDK Libraries (IPL) Alliance standard eliminates the need to develop multiple proprietary PDKs and design databases, reducing development costs, shortening delivery schedules and providing designers earlier access to new advanced process technologies across multiple tools. The combination of Titan's advanced capabilities and compliance with the IPL 1.0 standard provides designers with the fastest path to mixed-signal silicon.
"We have already collaborated with Magma to qualify Titan for the first foundry-specific 65-nm iPDK, which TSMC spearheaded," said Tom Quan, deputy director of design methodology and service marketing at TSMC. "TSMC is pleased that the Titan Mixed-Signal Platform also meets the iPDK quality standards set in IPL 1.0. This will help us deliver greater choices and advanced design features to our end customers."
"With the remarkable growth in the number of mixed-signal systems on chip (SoCs), designers need solid analog and digital design solutions that enable them to handle increased complexity while shortening the design cycle," said Anirudh Devgan, general manager of Magma's Custom Design Business Unit.
"By working with the IPL Alliance to validate the Titan Mixed-Signal Platform for the new IPL 1.0 standard, Magma helps designers accelerate analog and mixed-signal design without compromising accuracy."
