Magma Design Automation Inc. and Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. Tuesday (June 28) announced a partnership by which SMIC's Design Service division will adopt Magma's RTL-to-GDSII design solution for its ASIC design projects and Magma's SiliconSmart products for characterization and model creation of libraries and macros.

The companies said the partnership would enable mutual customers to implement system-on-chip (SoC) designs quickly and consistently.

As part of the agreement, Magma said a support team would be stationed on site at SMIC.

"As design complexity and time-to-market pressures increase, we find that an inherently integrated flow that delivers better results is critical," said Paul Ouyang, vice president of Design Services of SMIC (Shanghai, China), in a statement. "With its unified data model, Magma provides tight integration and enables our engineers to communicate more easily with the customer, allowing us to quickly finish the design."
