Magma(R) Design Automation Inc. (Nasdaq:LAVA), a provider of chip design solutions, announced today its inclusion in the Red Herring 100 as selected by the editors of Red Herring, the premier magazine of business technology and innovation.

The Red Herring 100 recognizes the top 50 public and the top 50 private companies whose services, business models, products and quality of management define business innovation. It previews the leaders of tomorrow in a number of key technology-related sectors, including software, biotechnology, wireless, communications services, media, hardware, nanotechnology, consumer electronics and energy.

"It's very gratifying to be recognized this way by the editors of Red Herring magazine," said Rajeev Madhavan, chairman and CEO of Magma.
