Magma Design Automation Inc. and LogicVision Inc. have reached an agreement under which the companies will deliver complete interoperability between LogicVision's icBIST and Magma's Blast Create and Blast Fusion products. This collaboration will provide a seamless RTL-to-GDSII flow that includes LogicVision's embedded test technology.

The companies will first focus on automating embedded logic testing within the RTL-to-GDSII flow. Embedded logic testing is a key component of LogicVision's embedded test technology. The embedded logic test capability leverages scan-based test techniques to deliver built-in, at-speed structural test and advanced diagnostics of random logic within systems on chip (SoCs). Blast Create, for logic design, and Blast Fusion, for physical design, are key components of Magma's RTL-to-GDSII flow.

Blast Create provides a unified environment for logic synthesis, physical synthesis, DFT analysis and insertion, power optimization and static timing analysis. Blast Fusion provides advanced analysis and optimization capabilities for designing high-performance, low-power designs. The Magma-LogicVision integrated flow will simplify the implementation of designs with embedded logic test and eliminate iterations.
