Magma Design Automation Inc. has expanded licensing agreement with NEC Electronics Corp. Under the terms of the multi-year agreement NEC will deploy Magma's complete line of IC implementation solutions, including Blast Create, Blast Plan, Blast Fusion APX, Blast Rail and Blast Noise, to its worldwide design teams and design centers.

NEC Electronics has already implemented numerous designs using the Magma software. Based on the timing, area, power and turnaround time improvements that have been achieved, NEC decided to significantly increase its usage of the Magma software.

"Over the past year we evaluated IC design methodology alternatives to meet our advanced requirements for 130nm and below. As a result we have decided to deploy and support worldwide a flow based on Magma technology," said Kazu Yamada, general manager of the Technology Foundation Development Division of NEC Electronics.
