The Compact Model Coalition (CMC) membership is open to companies in the semiconductor community that sell or use tools which use SPICE (Simulation Program with Integration Circuit Emphasis) device models, also referred to as Compact Models.
First, complete the membership agreement and return via fax or email. The agreement will be reviewed for approval. After approval, complete the model selection form, which determines model designation rights. The membership price is determined based on how many models are designated. Model designation provides companies with access to model working group materials, bug fixes, model beta code, the model quality assurance testing program, and voting rights on changes.
After model selection, an invoice is sent to the new member. After Si2 receives a purchase order, payment, or deferral (see step two), the member is given access to the CMC members-only site, and designator-only model working groups.
