PARIS – Tanner EDA (Monrovia, Calif.) announced it has joined the Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2), an organization focused on the development and adoption of standards to improve IC design.
Tanner EDA said it has joined Si2 because of its basic goal: EDA tool interoperability. The company also expects to participate in the Open PDK and Open Access coalitions to collaborate and share its technological know-how in the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal ICs.
To hear about many of Si2 project details, accomplishments, and work-in-progress, Si2 organizes the 15th Si2/OpenAccess+ Conference on Oct. 20 in Santa Clara.
This conference will cover the increasingly inter-related areas of OpenAccess, Design for Manufacturability (DFM), Low Power design and the newest Coalition for Open PDKs. Updates on the industry adoption of OpenAccess will be presented along with status and plans for the future for all coalitions. Semiconductor companies and EDA vendors who have adopted Si2 standards will discuss their advanced capabilities and their experience.
