Magma Joins Accellera to Focus on EDA Standards

5/28/2004 - Magma® Design Automation Inc. (Nasdaq: LAVA), a provider of chip design solutions, became a Corporate member of Accellera, the electronics industry organization focused on electronic design automation (EDA) standards. By joining Accellera, Magma has pledged to become actively involved in defining and evolving the SystemVerilog standard, implementation efforts, and interoperability definitions.

“Magma is an influential EDA leader and we welcome the company as a new Accellera member,” said Dennis Brophy, chairman of Accellera. “Our ongoing standards efforts will benefit from Magma’s active participation and valuable technical expertise.”

“SystemVerilog is being adopted by some of our high-end customers and, being a technology leader, we want to be at the leading edge of the adoption curve,” said Yatin Trivedi, Magma’s director of product marketing. “Blast Create has been proven to provide a predictable handoff to ASIC vendors, and Magma is now the leading EDA vendor in the integrated RTL-to-GDSII implementation market.
