  • Cadence OpenAccess Development Team: The Inside Story

    Many people are unaware that after donating the OpenAccess database to the Silicon Integration Initiative ( Si2 ) in 2002, Cadence has continued to maintain, revise and improve the OpenAccess reference implementation at its own expense. A recent Si2 award brought this contribution to light, and this...

  • Si2 Speakers: EDA Standards Must Address Systems, Software

    Who says standards are dull? The 15 th Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) OpenAccess Conference opened Oct. 20 with a rousing call to action by two speakers - a call to think beyond the traditional boundaries of EDA, and to include systems and software when it comes to standards. At the same time,...

  • The Case For SKILL PCells and PDKs

    Controversy is continuing over the use of Cadence SKILL language PCells versus "interoperable" parameterized cells written in Python. What's getting lost in this discussion is an important question: What are the advantages of SKILL for process design kit (PDK) development and analog/custom...

  • Seven Requirements For An Open PDK Standard

    My May 13 blog discussed the significance of the Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) OpenPDK Coalition , which is seeking to define an open standard that will allow foundries to create a single process design kit (PDK) representation that can be translated into different input formats. What is necessary...

  • What OpenPDK Is And Why It’s Important

    Since process development kits (PDKs) are necessary for all IC design, a major change in the way foundry PDKs are provided is significant news. Such change may be forthcoming from the Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) OpenPDK Coalition , which announced 10 founding members, including Cadence, May...

  • 3D IC Standards – First, Let’s Define Our Terms

    There's a lot of interest in 3D ICs these days, but there are many challenges to solve before 3D IC design can move into the mainstream. One challenge is the establishment of standards for design, modeling, and manufacturability. But the starting point is likely to be something even simpler - a dictionary...

  • Q&A: A Cadence View Of ‘Interoperable’ PCells

    If you’re involved in analog or custom IC design, you’ve no doubt read about “interoperable” parameterized layout cells (PCells) and process design kits (PDKs). What you probably haven’t heard is a Cadence viewpoint about these developments. The following Q&A interview...

  • OpenAccess – So Much To Celebrate, So Much To Do

    Two distinct messages emerged from the Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) OpenAccess Conference last week. One is that the OpenAccess database is a great EDA standards success story, perhaps the biggest such story of all. Another is that there’s still a lot of work to do so OpenAccess can offer...

  • Low-Power Workshop Advances Power Format Interoperability

    Design teams concerned about managing two different power formats will find some relief July 26, 2009. That’s the date of a Low Power Coalition (LPC) workshop that will present some ongoing work aimed at interoperability between the Common Power Format (CPF) and P1801 (Unified Power Format). The...
