Examples of 3D Path Finder capabilities
Pathfinder Simulation results for two selected nets. Two 3D nets selected in 3D design.


Pathfinder Easily generate complex PDNs. Easily generate complex busses


  • Import Verilog or 2D floorplan
  • Specify/modify 3D floorplan
  • View 3D connections via fly-lines or actual routes
  • Quickly route complex 3D busses
  • Extract and simulate specified 3D nets
  • Powerful PDN (power distribution network) generation

MAX-3D TSV Placer

  • Automatically finds "holes" for TSVs
  • Automatically optimizes and places TSVs
  • Shows 3D connectivity with flylines
  • Exports TSV data back into your 2D tools

MAX-View Layout Viewer

Built on MAX-3D, Micro Magicís native 3D Layout Editor


The MAX-3D-Design Suite contains
everything necessary to plan and lay
out today’s complex wafer-stack and
interposer multi-technology designs.

MMI’s suite of 3D tools includes
MAX-3D TSV Placer, and
MAX-3D Path Finder.

  • Load multiple chips in the same
    or different technologies
  • Manage multiple levels of hierarchy
    and multiple tech files all
    at the same time
  • Edit and view today’s largest
  • Automatic Connectivity Tracing
    through multiple levels
  • Show 3D connectivity with flylines
  • Use your existing 2D Tech files
  • View Results in 3D

    DPC-SUE to import designs from either
    2D floorplanner or block-level
    verilog; specify chip level, block size,
    connectivity; and export floorplan to

    MAX-3D for true 3-dimensional layout,
    supporting multiple distinct technology
    files for Through-Si Via 3D wafer-stack
    and interposer design.

MAX-3D Path Finder to explore viability of interposer or stacked-die implementations.

MAX-3D TSV Placer for automatically locating, optimizing and placing TSVs.
