Fusion Conference Melds Magma Users with Design Expertise

9/9/2003 - Magma Design Automation Inc. (Nasdaq: LAVA), a provider of chip design solutions, announced its second annual Fusion users group conference, September 18-19 at the Westin Hotel in Santa Clara. The conference provides an open forum for users to gain expertise using Magma's chip design software and to exchange ideas about, and solutions for, the challenges of deep submicron integrated circuit (IC) and system-on-chip (SoC) designs.

The program will feature tutorials, presentations and chat sessions given by Magma users, design industry experts and Magma's research & development staff. Keynote addresses will be offered by Jim Hogan, senior vice president, Artisan Components, and by Magma CEO Rajeev Madhavan. The conference will also feature an exposition where Magma's partners will exhibit products and services complementary to Magma offerings. Attendees will be able to speak directly with Magma partners about design, flow and integration solutions. The Fusion users group conference is open to all Magma customer companies.

"We are very excited about this year's show. The diversity in papers is a good representation of the growing adoption of the Magma products in many different design flows," said Pallab Chatterjee, Fusion chairman. "This event addresses the larger issues of flows and methodology solutions rather than just the traditional point-tool discussions."

Presentations and discussion topics will include:

Magma partners exhibiting in the Fusion Partners Expo include ClioSoft, LogicVision, Mentor Graphics, Silicon Canvas, Silicon Metrics, TSMC, Veritools, Virage Logic and Wipro Technologies.
