Si2 Announces “OPS Comes to Life” Session for Si2 Roundup@DAC

Design Automation Conference 2012

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) today announced the “OPS Comes to Life” session for the “Si2 Roundup@DAC: Standards in Action” co-located event at the Design Automation Conference, which will be held June 3-7 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. The session will be on Monday, June 4, from 9AM – 10:30AM, in Room 301, and is free of charge.

The Open Process Specification (OPS) standard, from Si2’s OpenPDK Coalition, contains all of the data elements that are necessary to create a Process Design Kit (PDK) in any EDA vendor’s or company proprietary design flow. This session is designed to appeal to any engineer working with PDKs and any engineering manager making budgeting or ROI decisions concerning PDK development. It will describe the structure and organization of this very important new standard in the industry and examples of the use cases that this standard will cover.
