Magma enhances Titan Platform

Aims to ensure predictable mixed-signal design flow

By CBR Staff Writer

Magma Design Automation, a provider of chip design software, has released the Titan mixed-signal design platform which includes the Titan Analog Simulation Environment (ASE) and Titan Schematic-Driven Layout (SDL) tools. The company has claimed that various productivity enhancements have also been made to the existing Titan Schematic Editor (SE), Titan Layout Editor (LE) and Titan Shape-Based Router (SBR).

With the new capabilities and enhancements, Titan reportedly delivers predictable mixed-signal designs, shortening the design process without sacrificing performance.

According to the company, Titan is the unified, open platform that embeds digital standard-cell design into the analogue circuit design flow. Integration with the company’s Talus digital implementation, Titan ADX accelerator, FineSim simulation and Quartz physical verification tools provides automation and reduces iterations during both block-level design and top-level integration.

Anirudh Devgan, general manager of custom design business unit at Magma, said: Since we introduced Titan a little over a year ago we’ve diligently worked to deliver critical enhancements and to meet key milestones in the development of this unique platform, Our efforts have paid off. With the addition of the recent enhancements and Titan ASE and Titan SDL, Magma’s Titan is the fastest path to mixed-signal silicon.

Titan is said to be the full-chip mixed-signal design, analysis and verification platform. Unlike other design products, Titan integrates mixed-signal implementation with digital implementation, circuit simulation and verification, to provide comprehensive capabilities.

According to the company, Titan SE, a schematic editor, facilitates schematic capture and editing, search and replace, hierarchy traversal and design management. Titan ASE, a specification-driven, test-based analogue simulation environment, allows design verification across different operating conditions.

The company noted that Titan SE, Titan ASE and Titan ADX capabilities are integrated to enable capturing of the design along with the user constraints, and verification of the optimised design with FineSim. The template-based design and characterisation framework allow verification of the implementation generated by Titan ADX.

The company stated that Titan SDL enables the creation of a connectivity-aware layout using language pcells. Titan LE provides a set of features to accomplish full-custom layout design in fewer clicks. Its enhanced capacity and speed coupled with the embedded Talus digital implementation capabilities provides mixed-signal chip integration within a single environment.

Magma’s Titan mixed-signal design platform is expected to be available in August 2009.
