Si2 Announces Agenda and Speakers for 17th Si2 Conference

AUSTIN, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 13, 2012 — The Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) today announced that its 17th Si2 Conference will be held on October 9, 2012, at the Network Meeting Center-Techmart, Santa Clara, CA. The Conference will feature speakers and demonstrations from several of the industry’s leading semiconductor and electronic-design automation (EDA) companies. Jim Hogan, EDA industry pioneer and venture capitalist will provide the keynote address.

The technical sessions will cover the increasingly inter-related areas of OpenAccess, Design for Manufacturability (DFM), Low Power, OpenPDK and Open3D standards. This event will also be another opportunity to celebrate the tenth anniversary of OpenAccess. Updates on the ongoing enhancements to OpenAccess and its industry adoption will be presented along with status and plans for the future for all coalitions and projects. Semiconductor companies and EDA vendors who have adopted Si2 standards will discuss their advanced capabilities and their experiences. Speakers include representatives from IBM, STMicroelectronics, Cadence, North Carolina State, ANSYS, eda2asic, Qualcomm, AMD, Oracle, and Synopsys.

There will be an OpenPDK session where the soon-to-be-released OPS 1.0 specification will be presented along with on-going work on a tools interface and ESD design methodology. The DFM session will cover the latest status of the projects in the DFM Coalition, such as, the proposed specification for a Unified Layer Model, as well as the plug-ins for OpenDFM parser. In the Low Power session, the highlight will be the presentation on power contributor modeling while the session on Open3D, there will be presentations in industry perspective and on the upcoming standards to enable 2.5D/3D designs. In the OpenAccess session, there will be presentations from EDA vendors and users showing growing adoption of this ubiquitous standard. The complete agenda is located here:

As in prior conferences, there will be an evening session, this year known as the "OA @ 10 Reception". 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.

All attendees will receive an OpenAccess 10th Anniversary polo shirt.
