MAX-View views chip designs in GDS and OpenAccess formats.


SUNNYVALE, CA – May 20, 2008 – Micro Magic announces that their popular MAX-View Layout Viewer now supports OpenAccess. For a limited time, MAX-View will be offered for free.

MAX-View – for Fast Layout Viewing

MAX-View has been a very popular product, with more than 150 companies now using MAX-View since its introduction one year ago. Chip designers have enjoyed the ability to view and error-check their largest chip designs instantly.

Micro Magic has demonstrated that MAX-View will load and display a chip design with one trillion (1,000,000,000,000) transistors. Redisplay is real-time on the “Trillion” chip – instantaneous at any zoom level.

MAX-View reads design data from GDSII, OpenAccess, and MAX file formats. MAX-View also imports industry standard display files – so that the user's color and layer preferences are maintained.

OpenAccess – New Industry Standard for Interoperability

Micro Magic has always embraced open architecture and has integrated well with other tools. Interoperability will be even easier by adopting the OpenAccess database standard.

Now, with OpenAccess support, MAX-View should appeal to a much larger set of users who may be interested in trying out OpenAccess. (OpenAccess is owned by Si2: www.si2.org )

Free for a Limited Time

Micro Magic is providing free MAX-View licenses to qualified users from now through July 31, 2009.

For editing, saving and other advanced features, Micro Magic recommends the full-featured MAX Layout Editor.
