OpenAccess DM6: A New Era Enabling Interoperable Cloud Design

Wednesday, June 5, 11:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
Las Vegas Convention Center
Design on Cloud Pavilion

OpenAccess is the industry’s standard design database enabling interoperability between integrated circuit design tools. For over 15 years, as the industry’s design needs and challenges have grown, the OpenAccess API and code have improved to meet them. The latest challenges are application enablement for cloud-computing, silicon photonics, artificial intelligence and machine learning.  

OpenAccess’ latest release, Data Model 6 (DM6), has been rearchitected to enable EDA software suppliers and
chip designers to tackle these issues head-on.

This session highlights improvements in DM6 and defines the path toward tool-interoperable cloud computing.

Si2 System-Level UPM/IEEE P2416 Demonstrations
