Magma Design Automation Inc. has announced that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the University of California, Los Angeles adopted Magma's Titan Analog Migration for research and studies in analogue mixed-signal design. Titan Analog Migration is an integral part of Magma's Titan mixed-signal design platform focused on solving challenges in analogue/mixed-signal design optimisation and porting.

Titan Analog Migration's model-based approach enables circuit optimisation and porting in a fraction of the time required by simulation-based techniques. The technology enables product groups to push the design envelope for extreme performance and for process, voltage and temperature (PVT) corner cases, and to reduce power and jitter. In addition to efficient and predictable storage of analogue circuits, Titan Analog Migration reduces design porting time from several weeks to just days.

"Research groups at MIT have used Titan Analog Migration successfully for design of key analogue circuits such as high-speed links and ultra-wide-band radios," said Professor Vladimir M. Stojanovic of MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. "This is an important effort, as it transforms the analogue IC design methodology and provides complete flexibility."

"Model-based design is a key enabling technology for top-down analogue design. Our students have had great success in designing complex mixed-signal circuits utilising Titan Analog Migration," said Professor Ken Yang of UCLA's Electrical Engineering Department. "Not only does it help designers think about circuits analytically, it also enables them to push the power-performance envelope and optimise circuits across a comprehensive range of PVT scenarios. Magma's Titan Analog Migration has been instrumental in exploring the feasible boundaries of a design specification for various process technologies and circuit topologies."
