The Magma 90nm Design Enablement Kit

Jointly validated by GLOBALFOUNDRIES, IBM and Magma, the Magma Design Enablement Kit is targeted to get the design team up and running with the Magma RTL-to-GDSII design flow with minimal effort and high confidence. This optimized kit consists of three components:

    • Library Specific Enablement - Available from approved library vendors
      • Standard Library Views
      • Magma's Stdlib.tcl File
      • Noise Rules File

Advanced Tools and Features:
Blast Create ™ Gain-based synthesis tool that seamlessly integrates fast, high-capacity synthesis into a complete RTL-to-GDSII solution.
Blast Plan ™ Pro Enables both top-down and bottom-up hierarchical planning.
Blast Fusion APX ® Complete netlist-to-GDSII design flow for cell-based ICs. Based on Magma’s patented unified data model and FixedTiming® methodology, Blast Fusion eliminates timing closure iterations and accelerates time to market for large, complex deep-submicron designs.
Blast Rail ™ A correct-by-construction rail design solution and is fully integrated with Magma’s RTL-to-GDSII implementation flow.
Blast Noise® Detects and corrects crosstalk noise during physical design.
