Netxen Uses Magma's Integrated IC Implementation Flow for Its NX3031 Next-Generation Networking Chip
August 19, 2008 -- Magma Design Automation, Inc. today announced that Netxen, a provider of 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) technology and products, has released to production the NX3031, a multimillion-gate, 90-nm, enterprise-class network interface controller that was implemented with Magma's software. Leveraging the Magma system's integrated power, signal integrity, timing analysis, and capabilities, Netxen was able to achieve extremely high utilization, eliminate crosstalk and minimize DRC errors.
"In large, complex 90-nm designs the wires are very close to each other, and without a fast and advanced router, addressing crosstalk can become a time-consuming and costly challenge," said Ross Werner, Vice President of Hardware Engineering at Netxen. "We adopted the Magma flow after it was shown to dramatically shorten the physical design cycle while allowing us to achieve high utilization and meet aggressive timing requirements."
