SiliconBlue Technologies has formalised a technical partnership with Magma Design Automation. The agreement facilitates close collaboration and co-development between the two companies to provide a comprehensive FPGA design environment for SiliconBlue's iCE65 FPGA product line, which was introduced in June.

Under the agreement, Magma's timing-driven physical synthesis and placement technology—tailored for SiliconBlue's iCE65 architecture—has been fully integrated into SiliconBlue's iCEcube tool flow providing designers with a seamless FPGA design environment from concept to bitstream. The tools support standard constraint formats and provide comprehensive coverage of Verilog and VHDL languages. In addition, the tools take advantage of SiliconBlue's advanced NVCM (non-volatile configuration memory) technology at 65 nm and future process nodes.

"Our partnership with Magma gives us and our customers access to proven, state-of-the-art logic and physical synthesis tools," said Kapil Shankar, CEO of SiliconBlue. "The integration of these tools will allow SiliconBlue customers to take full advantage of the benefits of our unique low-cost, low-power iCE65 FPGA product line."
