Magma Design Automation introduced Talus Vortex FX, which features Distributed Smart Sync technology. The integrated circuit (IC) implementation solution fully utilizes distributed computing for place and route. Talus Vortex FX is ideal for all technologies and addresses multi-mode, multi-corner (MMMC) design, low-power design, on-chip variation (OCV), advanced on-chip variation (AOCV), and crosstalk effects. Talus Vortex FX enables designers to implement multimillion-cell designs flat with throughput of over 2 million cells per day.
Magma Design Automation introduced version 1.2 of Talus integrated circuit (IC) implementation solution. Talus v1.2 helps engineers to implement 1 million to 1.5 million cells per day on large designs or blocks of 2 million to 5 million cells – with crosstalk avoidance, advanced on-chip variation (AOCV) and multi-mode multi-corner (MMMC) analysis enabled. Talus is currently in use for complex 28nm designs. Talus 1.2 features faster, more accurate routing, timing and extraction technologies and advanced capabilities. It improves turnaround time by 5x to 6x.
