Si2 welcomes MediaTek Inc. as the newest member of the OpenAccess Coalition. The OpenAccess Database is the world’s most widely used, open reference database for IC design, with a supporting standard API. It was developed to create authentic interoperability between EDA companies and semiconductor designers and manufacturers. Its adoption has improved design flow efficiency across the […]
Quick and Easy Scripting Solutions for your IC Design Problems Interrogate Design: This demonstration is based on a problem where someone used the wrong library book, and it was discovered late in the design process. With our scripting interface, it’s very easy to exchange two library books. – See the video here.
Si2 is launching Special Interest Groups for its OpenPDK and OpenAccess programs. Join us at the DAC 2017 organizational meeting, Monday, June 19, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., Austin Convention Center, Room 7. For details visit http://www.si2.org/events/dac_sig_meeting/
Si2 OpenAccess is the common design standard for today’s EDA infrastructure. OpenAccess data base APIs have been used by the EDA industry for 13 years. In that time, new computing environments have emerged that deliver better performance and faster development times. OpenAccess has also embraced this future with new capabilities that: improve design flow performance; allow it to run on multiple computers; quickly solve more complex problems; and secure the design data.

Si2 Design Ecosystem Survey: We asked. You answered. We listened.
The Si2 Design Ecosystem Special Interest Group conducted a survey to determine the direction of design in the next three years and identify the gaps in the current ecosystem. Responses from more than 120 participants have been analyzed and will presented in this informative panel discussion. Panelists will review key findings and suggestions to manage rising costs of more complex designs, smaller geometries and regulatory requirements.
