Description: Si2’s Compact Model Coalition is currently in the third phase of our process to define a standard model for GalliumNitride (GaN) High Electron-Mobility Transistors (HEMTs). These devices are currently used in high power switching and RF applications, where their power and speed sets them apart from most other technologies. We started with eight candidates, […]

Geoffrey J. Coram of Analog Devices is the new volunteer technical advisor for the Si2 Compact Model Coalition. In this newly created position he advises the coalition on Verilog-A implementation for its standard compact models. Over the past decade, the preferred language for development and implementation of compact models has shifted from C to Verilog-A. Recognizing […]
Si2 announces the second in a series of member-only webinars focusing on XML–Introduction to XML Schemas. XML schemas are the normative definitions of any XML-based standard. The schema defines the domain- specific vocabulary (DSV) and types of values in an XML database. The XML database must conform to its schemas, using the predefined elements and […]
Many Si2 OpenStandards are based on XML, the eXtensible Markup Language. XML files have a consistent syntax and, combined with the domain specific vocabulary defined in the Open Process Specification (OPS) schemas, succinctly capture the data used to model the IC fabrication process to the design tools. The OPS XML database contains the constraints, layers, […]
