Renesas expands utilization of Blast Create, Blast Fusion IC

Renesas Technology Corp. has received working silicon on a one-million gate design that was implemented with Magma Design Automation Inc.'s Blast Create and Blast Fusion IC implementation solution. Renesas has already implemented several designs using Magma's physical design solution. The company is currently expanding utilization to its microcontroller design group.

Renesas cited the capacity, productivity and predictability advantages of adding Magma's synthesis to their flow. Magma's logic synthesis technology allowed Renesas to implement the entire design without any partitioning. The designers used the Early Silicon Performance (ESP) reports to accurately predict whether or not they would meet their timing goal, and to guide them through the process of achieving that goal.

The tight integration of the Magma's logic synthesis and physical design engines through a unified data model meant the designers only had to develop one set of constraints, and provided the front-end designers with visibility into how their RTL coding could cause potential problems in the backend.
