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.

Join the Si2 Board of Directors and your industry colleagues for an informative update on our recent successes and member opportunities in our collaborative R&D programs.
Si2 will also present the first annual Power of Partnership Awards to our volunteers who have made outstanding contributions to the EDA industry. Winners of the inaugural award are key contributors to the oaScript Working Group.
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.
(Wednesday) 11:00 am - 11:45 am
