Design Automation Conference, Magma® Design Automation, today launched Silicon One, an initiative intended to bring focus to making silicon profitable for customers by providing differentiated solutions and technologies that address business imperatives facing semiconductor makers today – time to market, product differentiation, cost, power and performance. Magma is debuting its solution-oriented Silicon One offerings at the 48th annual Design Automation Conference, opening today in San Diego.

"Some EDA vendors attempt to be all things to all people. They try to lock customers into complete end-to-end flows, but it simply isn’t possible for one company to do everything well – there is no ‘one size fits all’ in EDA,” said Rajeev Madhavan, Magma’s chairman and chief executive officer. “By comparison, Magma is focused on making silicon profitable for our customers. We concentrate on providing differentiated solutions and technologies that address all of the main business issues – time to market, product differentiation, cost, power, and performance – that chip makers are currently facing when dealing with the convergence of digital, analog, and memory systems in a single chip.

“We aim to be the best at what we do, and we collaborate with other companies – who might even be competitors – who are the best at what they do,” Madhavan added.

Silicon One’s initial focus is on five types of devices that are key to electronic products that are most prevalent today:

• ASIC/ASSP: Network processing, data storage chips, and consumer multimedia chips such as ones in digital televisions (DTVs) are among the biggest silicon chips in the world. The massive sizes associated with these devices have made the cost and time associated with developing them nearly impractical.

• Analog/Mixed-Signal (AMS): The exponential growth of the wireless market has dramatically accelerated the need for more advanced analog/mixed-signal designs. Key critical analog blocks are increasing in AMS chips while the digital content is also growing to accommodate increased control functions. The latest generation of AMS designs resemble SoC devices – they are large, complex, and are created using more advanced process nodes.

• Memory: The proliferating use of SRAM, DRAM, Flash and image sensors in smartphones, cameras, tablets, notebooks, etc. has created one of the most competitive markets in terms of cost and time to market. The key concerns of these customers are high reliability memory chips (every bit of memory must work) at the lowest possible cost.

• Processing Cores: High-performance cores are the building blocks of any application or graphic processing chip today. The entire system performance is often limited by how fast these processing engines can run. Also, the system’s power consumption has great dependencies with regard to how low power these cores can be.

• System-on-Chip (SoC): Today’s state-of-the-art SoC designs integrate everything – digital (including multiple processing cores and hardware accelerators), analog, mixed-signal, and memory – together on a single chip. The result is that SoCs are among the most challenging and complex designs, but they enable the integration of many functions and provide the lower component cost, lower power consumption, and higher processing throughput demanded by the most advanced end-applications.

“In our early days, Magma was perceived as being the world’s most innovative RTL-to-GDSII EDA company,” Madhavan said. “Later, we began to be perceived as one of the world’s most innovative analog and mixed-signal companies. Now, we have emerged as the world’s most innovative provider of silicon solutions for ASIC/ASSPs, SoCs, high-performance cores, memories and AMS designs.”
