The Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) has announced that its 16th Si2 Conference will be held on October 20, 2011, at the Network Meeting Center-Techmart, Santa Clara, CA. Dr. Ajoy Bose, Chairman, President, and CEO of Atrenta will provide the keynote address, entitled “SoC Realization – Building a Bridge to New Markets and Renewed Growth.”
This conference will cover the increasingly inter-related areas of OpenAccess, Design for Manufacturability (DFM), Low Power design, and Open PDK standards. Updates on the ongoing enhancements to OpenAccess and it industry adoption will be presented along with status and plans for the future for all coalitions and projects. Speakers will include participants from: AMD, Cadence, Calypto, Entasys, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, IBM, LSI, Mentor Graphics, SpringSoft, STMicroelectronics, and TI.
There will be a DFM session which will cover the latest status of the projects in the DFM Coalition, such as, standardization of a format to transfer parasitic data from a foundry or technology provider, as well as the approach taken to verify the standards created by this coalition. Another session will cover the progress made in the past year in defining standards for PDK’s which are the fundamental building block for semiconductor design. In addition, OpenAccess is growing dramatically, based on the increasing membership in the OpenAccess Coalition and the number of companies who have developed tools and flows on this industry standard. It is now a "must have" for industry players and the talks in this session will highlight relevant experiences. Low Power Coalition work in power modeling standards, and application of the latest standard will be presented.
