OpenAccess Coalition membership is open to companies in the semiconductor community that sell or use, or intend to port over, a production-level EDA application that makes use of the OpenAcesss API as the primary access to design data.
Companies that do not qualify for OpenAccess Coalition membership may qualify for a guest membership, which allows non-commercial, internal use of a legacy version of the OpenAccess API, code, and documentation for development of a production-level EDA application.
First, complete the membership agreement and return via fax or email. The membership agreement will be reviewed for approval. Once approved, the member may then complete the license agreement, which provides access to the OpenAccess code and documentation and inclusion on OpenAccess Coalition mailing list. If desired, the optional Extension Steering Group (ESG) license can be completed. It provides access to core database extensions, including the scripting interface to OpenAccess, which supports Python, Ruby, tcl, and perl.
