Free Webinar for Si2 Members focuses on XML Schemas

Si2 announces the second in a series of member-only webinars focusing on XML–Introduction to XML Schemas.

XML schemas are the normative definitions of any XML-based standard. The schema defines the domain- specific vocabulary (DSV) and types of values in an XML database. The XML database must conform to its schemas, using the predefined elements and entering values that are compliant with the schema.

Session 1: Schema Syntax                           
Thursday, November 10
10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. PST
 
— What is a schema?
— Namespaces
— How to understand the contents of a schema
— Schema elements

Session 2:  Si2 OpenStandards Schemas
Thursday, November 17

10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. PST

— Installing Si2 OpenStandards schemas
— What is in each schema
— Examples of compliant XML databases

Free Webinar for Si2 Members: Introduction to XML

Many Si2 OpenStandards are based on XML, the eXtensible Markup Language. XML files have a consistent syntax and, combined with the domain specific vocabulary defined in the Open Process Specification (OPS) schemas, succinctly capture the data used to model the IC fabrication process to the design tools.

The OPS XML database contains the constraints, layers, stacks, devices and rules that represent the fabrication process in a vendor-neutral format. This single source for the data is used to generate process design kits.

About the Course
This introductory course focuses on the XML file syntax that will help you create well-formed XML files. Through lecture, quizzes and labs, you will examine the syntax of XML elements and learn how to create, modify or read and understand an OPS XML file. We will explore the file format, elements and attributes, namespaces and connecting to schemas.

Prerequisites: A willingness to learn XML and an interest in OPS.

Course Outline

  1.   Exploring XML
    — XML editors
    — What is XML and why do we use it?
    — How do you use OPS XML?
    — What is a valid XML file?
  1.   XML File Format
    — XML prologue and comments
    — XML element declaration
    — Attributes
    — Sub-elements and content value
  1.   Namespaces and Schemas

The example used in the class is a single OPS XML hierarchy that will be used for future courses in this series.  A recording will be available on the Si2 Community web site.

Who Should Attend
Si2 member company employees who work with, create, edit or read XML data files are invited to attend this free webinar.

Free Si2 Member Webinar: Introduction to XML Schemas

   XML schemas are the normative definitions of any XML-based standard. The schema defines the domain- specific vocabulary (DSV) and types of values in an XML database. The XML database must conform to its schemas, using the predefined elements and entering values that are compliant with the schema.
   OpenStandards schemas, developed by Si2 members, implement the Open Process Specification (OPS), defining the DSV for capturing process data and interfacing with PDK generation tools.
   This webinar–open only to Si2 members–introduces XML schema syntax that defines the OPS domain-specific vocabulary. We will explore the syntax and content of a schema using examples from the OPS schemas, building from the simple to the complex and covering the important schema elements used to create OPS schemas. After this class, you should be able to interpret a schema and use them when creating XML data.
