BoardView Becomes SystemNav

Almost two years ago we looked at Magma’s newly-announced BoardView. The idea was to simplify the border crossing between chip and board when tracing signals and tracking down issues.

Magma has now announced the new-and-updated version of this tool, which they’re now calling SystemNav. They’ve essentially increased the reach of the tool to include 3D packages and multi-chip modules as well as chips and boards. But they also say that they’ve fundamentally beefed up the platform to handle more than two design databases, improve performance, and provide a more robust set of features, all built on a new underlying framwork.

To use their words, “We started with a Model T with limited mileage and capability.  We now have a modern Mercedes with much more power, capability, features, and total different framework.”
