Press Release Body = Magma Design Automation Inc. (Nasdaq: LAVA), a provider of chip
design solutions, today announced that MUSIC-India (Magma Users Summit on Integrated
Circuits), will be held in Bangalore Nov. 7-8. In its third year, MUSIC-India's
expected attendance has grown significantly, reflecting the growing number of
cutting-edge designs being done in India and Magma's growing customer base and
expanding presence here.

A platform that encourages the exchange of ideas and challenges faced in nanometer
IC design, this year's MUSIC-India will feature 15 user presentations, tutorials and
more. Highlights of this year's event will be keynotes by Rajeev Madhavan, Chairman
and CEO of Magma, and Dr. Bobby Mitra, managing director of Texas Instruments, who
will present "The Semiconductor Market in India: A Lifetime Opportunity."

"The number and complexity of IC designs being done in India is growing fast, and so
are the design challenges," said Jagdeesh Rao, Managing Director of Texas
Instruments. "Today, noise, power and signal integrity, on-chip variation, and
timing closure must all be addressed. With its emphasis on user case-studies and
tutorials, MUSIC provides designers with a platform to share knowledge and learn
practical and proven techniques. The MUSIC conference is sure to be a very useful
forum and I am sure Magma users in India will receive immense value by attending
this event.\"

"There was a sharp increase in attendance at last year's MUSIC-India conference, and
we look forward to a similar increase this year," said Atreya Nagraja, Regional
Director of Magma India. "We're very pleased with the quality of the papers that
have been submitted this year and believe that MUSIC-India attendees will learn to
better address today's complex design challenges."

An annual event held in key semiconductor hubs, MUSIC provides a forum for Magma
users to exchange ideas, discuss common problems and to explore solutions related to
the design and manufacturing of integrated circuits, as well as offers users an
opportunity to meet with Magma staff and product experts. The MUSIC program covers
key elements of semiconductor design from system-level design to tape-out for
systems on chips, ASICs, structured ASICs, ASSPs and FPGAs. The tutorials by senior
Magma staff provide the users an opportunity to learn about the latest products,
features and enhancements in the Magma software and to provide feedback for further
development of Magma products.

MUSIC-India is open to all Magma users. It will be held Nov. 7-8 at The Leela Palace
