iWatt, Inc., specializing in a power control ICs, has licensed the Titan mixed-signal design platform from Magma Design Automation Inc. to improve analog design and layout productivity and to automate difficult routing tasks analog cell layouts and chip-level assembly.
iWatt said Magma's Titan enabled its designers to set up and route a design in 2 days, an effort that would have taken more than two weeks to do manually.
The Titan mixed-signal design platform is a unified mixed-signal design cockpit with a very high capacity and a very fast database access mechanism. Titan comprises user-friendly full-custom schematic and layout editors, an analog simulation environment integrated with the FineSim simulator, correct-by-design schematic-driven layout and integration with Magma’s tools for physical verification and digital implementation. By embedding Talus for digital design, Titan combines full-custom analog design tools with a digital flow for high-level mixed-signal chip design efficiency.
