San Jose, CA - June 9, 2010 - GRID Simulation Technology, Inc. (GST), a Silicon Valley design automation startup, today announced it has joined Si2 as a result of the company's increased presence in the electro-migration (EM) and power integrity (IR drop) simulation and verification market. GST will be making available to Si2 its hierarchical design format for circuit analysis.
"Electrical design-for manufacturability (eDFM) modifies a design to physically optimize and measurably affect electrical performance " said Jake Buurma, Vice-President of Si2. "GST has significant experience working with large, hierarchical netlist formats and their expertise is a welcome addition to Si2. They will help us better address a comprehensive design flow that addresses eDFM interoperability challenges.”
GST and Design for Manufacturability Coalition Workshop at DAC
GST will participate in the Design for Manufacturability Coalition Workshop - "A New Era for DFM" on Sunday, June 13, 2010 at the Design Automation Conference, Anaheim, Calif. The event takes place in room 207C, 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Anaheim Convention Center. GST will also be exhibiting its EM/IR verification solutions at booth #1262.
“We’re enthused to be part of the Si2 DFM Workshop and I look forward to working with Si2 as well as Si2’s member companies.” said Bob Pack, Chief Technologist eDFM, GST. “At GST we are focused on providing solutions to the world’s largest and most complex electronic simulation challenges. We see a real trend where giga-scale problems require nano-scale detail without any compromises in accuracy.”
"Engineers need a standard approach to address the exploding complexity for sign-off of conventional and new 3D integrated circuit designs” said John L. Kulusich, Vice President, Business Development, GST. “Joining Si2 is the next step in GRID’s plan to address customer needs for EM and IR drop sign-off accuracy and interoperability. We look forward to working in collaboration with Si2 and Si2 member companies.”
