  • How EDA360 “Realizations” Leverage Industry Standards

    The EDA360 vision , articulated by Cadence one year ago, is not about one company - it's a vision for an entire industry. As such, EDA360 depends on a collaborative ecosystem with many players, including other EDA vendors, silicon IP providers, foundries, design services companies, and many others...

  • 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...
