Gain-based Synthesis: Speeding RTL to Silicon

Magma, a company established in 1997, has developed a complete system to specifically address the issues of 0.18-micron and below multimillion-gate devices. The company initially offered Blast Fusion, a solution that provided huge productivity gains for a gates-to-GDSII design flow. Now, with Blast Chip, Magma has extended the flow to include its revolutionary gain-based synthesis technology, giving the industry its first ever RTL-to-GDSII featuring a unified data model and capable of handling multimillion-gate devices while eliminating iterations. This paper introduces the key features of the Blast Chip digital IC design flow, with particular emphasis on Magma's new gain-based synthesis technology.
