Bangalore, Mar 1: Magma Design Automation, a semiconductor design software provider, today announced the availability of an advanced low-power IC implementation reference flow for the 90-nanometer low-power process offered through the IBM-Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Common Platform.
The Magma flow, featuring Blast Power, Blast Fusion, Blast Create and Blast Rail NX, addressed the three major concerns of power management -- dynamic power, leakage power and power distribution.
It had been qualified using real-world designs and libraries, the company said in a release here.
The low-power reference flow was part of Magma's design enablement kit for the IBM-Chartered Common Platform, which included a test design that exercised all the low-power features, including automatic level shifter insertion, the release said.
''The continued momentum behind the IBM-Chartered Common Platform by key design enablement partners such as Magma will help further accelerate the transition to 90nm and beyond for our mutual customers,'' Mr Kevin Meyer, Vice-President of worldwide marketing and platform alliances at Chartered, said.
