Magma Design Automation Inc.'s Blast Fusion's built-in parasitic extraction capability has been validated by TSMC for its 0.13?m process. The extraction capability is an integral part of Magma's RTL-to-GDSII design tool suite and provides accurate timing correlation between the IC implementation process and final silicon. The RTL-to-GDSII tool suite includes Blast Create, Blast Plan, and Blast Fusion APX.

"Our customers' migration to nanometer process technologies is growing, and so are their demands for EDA technology that allows them to leverage it for their most complex designs. To meet these demands, Magma is working with industry leaders such as TSMC so our customers can access leading-edge technology," said Michael Ma, VP of business development at Magma. "Blast Fusion's extraction capability is an integral part of Magma's RTL-to-GDSII tool suite, allowing customers to achieve timing closure without having to take the design out of the Magma environment. By offering highly accurate parasitic extraction within the system, Magma shortens design cycles and enables customers to get to nanometer silicon faster," Ma added.
