Si2 “Much More than OpenAccess” Conference
October 21st, 2010 by Graham Bell
I attended the Reception and Product Demonstration at the Si2 OpenAccess+ Conference at the TechMart in Santa Clara, CA on Oct. 20th and spoke with Steve Schultz about all the interesting progress that is going on at Si2.
First a little background on Si2. Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) is is a user-driven organization that addresses advanced silicon system integration issues and associated design environments for the semiconductor industry. Si2 is focused on improving productivity and reducing cost in creating and producing integrated silicon systems. Steve is President and CEO of Si2 which now has over 100 member companies
The four main topics areas that were covered at the conference were OpenAccess, OpenDFM, Low Power Modeling, and OpenPDKs. In Steve’s interview, he spoke about some of the highlights and also mentioned other important developments such as 3D design.
