Press release – Magillem EDA solution selected by Renesas for design automation, IP packaging and content generation


Tokyo, Japan- June 18th, 2017- Magillem, a leading provider of software solutions for complex front end design and documentation flow, today announced that Renesas Electronics Corporation has adopted Magillem’s EDA solution for its design automation, IP packaging and content generation.

« Renesas is continuously looking for better ways to reach the highest level of quality. The adoption of the IP-XACT standard and the deployment of Magillem’s design flow helps us establish a more robust automation environment for both the hardware and the software aspects of our products » said Toshinori Inoshita, Senior Manager, Elemental Technology Development Div. 1, Renesas System Design Co., Ltd.

Renesas products are positioned in very aggressive markets, requiring large number of product derivatives in order to satisfy all different customers requirements. Repeatability of the design processes, portability of the design flows and real IP reuse solution are a must.

A single sourcing environment based on an undisputed IEEE industry standard and built around Magillem allows Renesas to quickly react to changes in the product requirements despite development teams being spread across multiple continents.

« We are excited about our solution being chosen by Renesas. This allows us to demonstrate the full potential of our method and software when implementing complex SOC design processes », said Pascal Chauvet, Magillem VP Strategic Accounts Manager. « It validates the trend we have been observing of companies implementing solid automation platforms based on a single industry standard format to unify all their design activities. The message is clear: higher productivity and quality cannot be built on a collection of point tools. They require a consistent end to end design flow solution ».
