Magma Expands Statistical Timing Analysis Methodology for More Robust Design
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 25, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Magma(r) Design Automation Inc. (Nasdaq:LAVA), a supplier of semiconductor design software, today announced an enhanced statistical static timing analysis (SSTA) methodology that is tuned to TSMC's 65-nanometer (nm) process. The methodology is based on Magma's Quartz(tm) SSTA and expands the capabilities offered in TSMC Reference Flow 7.0. This advanced methodology now supports global (inter-die) and random (intra-cell) process variations, composite current source (CCS) models, statistical leakage analysis and statistical optimization as validated in TSMC Reference Flow 8.0. In addition, TSMC now provides Magma with rules to enable statistical extraction and worst-scenario RC analysis. The two companies have worked together for nearly two years developing and qualifying this methodology. The benefits include reduced risk, improved quality of results (QoR), more robust designs, faster turnaround time and a vastly simplified sign-off flow.
