BANGALORE, INDIA: Magma Design Automation has announced Chrontel, a leading provider of display interface ICs for personal computers, portable media players and smartphones, has standardized on the Titan Mixed-Signal Design Platform, FineSim SPICE and FineSim Pro circuit simulation, and Quartz DRC and Quartz LVS physical verification products.
Chrontel selected the Magma software after an extensive evaluation and benchmarking of the Titan-based flow against other EDA flows resulted in a 50 percent improvement in productivity.
“To keep up with the changing demands of the consumer market, our customers need a constant supply of innovative visual interface IC solutions,” said Dr. David Soo, president and CEO of Chrontel. “Magma’s comprehensive, highly integrated analog/mixed-signal design platform and simulation and verification solutions streamline our entire analog/mixed-signal design flow and allows us to deliver the high-quality, differentiated silicon our customers need – on time.”
“With the tight integration of Titan, FineSim and Quartz, analog designers can leverage faster throughput, higher capacity and more automation to develop innovative analog/mixed-signal ICs faster and more cost effectively,” said Anirudh Devgan, general manager of Magma's Custom Design Business Unit. “Chrontel’s decision to standardize on the Titan-based flow illustrates how Magma’s Silicon One initiative brings together superior technology, design expertise and our customers’ creativity to deliver profit-driving differentiated silicon.”
Silicon One solution for analog/mixed-signal design
With Titan, FineSim and Quartz, Magma’s Silicon One solution for analog/mixed-signal designs provides the highest speed, capacity, and the required accuracy to be able to handle even the largest analog/mixed-signal SoC designs.
It includes Titan, a breakthrough analog automation and optimization product that is fully integrated into Magma’s Talus digital implementation platform. The Titan platform delivers first-time-correct, predictable mixed-signal designs, without sacrificing performance, and shortens the design process by weeks. With automated mixed-signal assembly and verification, Titan provides an order-of-magnitude productivity improvement over other tool flows.
FineSim provides fast, high-capacity circuit simulation that can be deployed for MCU, FPGA, interface and power management chips to fully simulate and verify these designs. The fully scalable Quartz DRC and Quartz LVS provide a superior alternative to traditional tools, allowing designers to handle more complex designs in less time with existing hardware.
