Magma Design Automation Inc. announces that iWatt has adopted its Titan platform to automate routing tasks such as analog cell layouts and chip-level assembly, thereby improving analog design and layout productivity.

iWatt is a developer of digital power supply control ICs. It chose the Titan platform based on results of an evaluation in which Titan enabled iWatt�s designers to set up and route a design in just two days�an effort that would have taken more than two weeks to do manually.

Magma�s Titan is a mixed-signal SoC design environment that includes the Titan Mixed-Signal Design Platform and the Titan Accelerators. The Titan Mixed-Signal Platform integrates implementation and verification while delivering first-time-correct, predictable mixed-signal designs. It includes user-friendly full-custom schematic and layout editors, an analog simulation environment and correct-by-design schematic-driven layout.

Titan Accelerators are technology solutions that improve analog/mixed-signal design productivity and reuse. Titan Analog Design Accelerator (Titan ADX) is a model-based analog design and optimization tool that enables analog design reuse. ADX creates new designs from Magma�s library of FlexCell building blocks, and makes existing designs reusable as FlexCell models. Titan Analog Virtual Prototyper (Titan AVP) is a layout-aware schematic design tool that performs simultaneous electrical and physical co-design for rapid schematic-to-layout convergence. Titan Analog Layout Accelerator (Titan ALX) automates migration of analog cell layouts to new process technologies while preserving design intent. Titan Shape-Based Router (Titan SBR) automates difficult routing tasks improving routing productivity by a factor of 10.
