AUSTIN, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 18, 2013 — The Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) today announced that its 18th Si2 Conference will be held on October 8, 2013, at the Network Meeting Center-Techmart in Santa Clara, CA. The Conference will feature speakers and demonstrations from several of the industrys leading semiconductor and electronic-design automation (EDA) companies. The keynote speaker is Dr. Keith Green, Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff in Analog Technology Development at Texas Instruments, and Chair of the Compact Model Coalition. The complete agenda can be found at: http://www.si2.org/?page=1384.
As Si2 enters its 2nd quarter-century, member companies have discovered and embraced the business value of multiple inter-related standards projects. With the acquisition of the Compact Model Councilthe source of important industry-wide SPICE modelsthe value of Si2s collaboration model has soared. This conference will explore how these projects stand alone as valuable business propositions, as well as how they work to strengthen each other. Key technical sessions and speakers include:
The Promise of a Universal PDK - Write Once, Use Many: ST
Microelectronics and Intel
Automated Runset Generation - A New Capability for DFM Verification Tools: IBM and Si2
A New Era of Cooperation in Low-Power Design - System Level Power-Aware Design: Cadence and aggios
OpenAccess is Easy to Work With - Believe It or Not!: Altera and Si2
SPICE Models Come to Si2: TI, LSI, and Agilent
Breakfast and lunch are included, as well as a network session after the technical conference. This will showcase demos of advances based on the technologies offered by Si2, and will also serve as a valuable opportunity for networking. Refreshments will be served. Cadence Design Systems is the event sponsor and EDACafe is the media sponsor.
All attendees will also receive an Si2 25th Anniversary polo shirt.
Membership in Si2 projects is open to all interested parties across the semiconductor supply chain. For more information see: http://www.si2.org/?page=1137
