Magma at the Electronic Design and Solutions Fair 2003

1/30/2003 - Magma® Design Automation Inc. (Nasdaq: LAVA), a provider of chip design solutions, announced that the company will offer product demonstrations at the Electronic Design and Solutions Fair 2003 (EDSF) in Pacifico Yokohama, Japan, January 30 and 31. Magma will be exhibiting in Booth 802 and showing the company's complete IC implementation system.

At EDSF Magma will demonstrate its unique gain-based synthesis for the front-end designer and will also cover Magma's physical design technology. It will show how timing, power and signal integrity are taken into account using Magma's correct-by-construction approach.

Magma, the first EDA company to merge both logical and physical design into a single, integrated system with one executable and a unified data model, offers a complete RTL-to-GDSII implementation solution that enables IC designers to achieve rapid design closure on complex designs - while dramatically reducing overall time to market. Magma's software was recently selected by VDEC, the VLSI Design and Education Center, for use at all the organization's member universities in Japan. As a result of VDEC's choosing Magma, the company donated 100 licenses for use by the universities in their research and teaching programs.
