Magma Design Automation Designing Ahead of the Curve
Date: Monday , January 05, 2009
Magma is a fast-growing software company that provides electronic design automation (EDA) products to the world's major semiconductor manufacturers to design some of the most complex and highest-performing integrated circuits (ICs) required in cellular telephones, electronic games, WiFi, MP3 players, DVD/digital video, networking, automotive electronics and other electronic applications.
The company was founded in 1997 on the concept of combining logic design and physical design into a single system to better address emerging deep submicron design challenges. Magma is also the first to combine analog and digital design into a single platform. Unlike other solutions, Magma tightly integrates mixed-signal implementation with digital implementation, circuit simulation, transistor-level extraction and verification – providing a quantum leap in efficiency and productivity for analog designers.
With headquarters in Silicon Valley and a global network of sales and support personnel, Magma customers include leading semiconductor companies around the world. The company's revenue for its 2008 fiscal year stood at $214.4 million, a growth of more than 20 percent compared to 2007 fiscal year.
