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.
