Magma, Artisan Components and TSMC Collaboration Enables Noise-Immune Deep Submicron Designs

3/19/2002 - Artisan Components, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARTI) a leading provider of semiconductor intellectual property, Magma Design Automation, Inc., (Nasdaq: LAVA), a provider of chip design solutions, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the world's largest dedicated semiconductor foundry, announced today the immediate availability of the first in a series of qualified libraries that include enhanced signal integrity (SI) characterization models. Magma's Blast Fusion(TM) physical design and Blast Noise(TM) SI methodology, combined with the enhanced Artisan libraries, enables mutual customers to automatically analyze and avoid signal integrity issues in integrated circuit (IC) implementation. This eliminates error-inducing and time-consuming data transfers between independent SI analysis and physical design tools, and increases the noise-immunity of designs, minimizing the time to volume production.
