Tanner EDA Joins the Silicon Integration Initiative
(Nanowerk News) The Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) announced today that Tanner EDA, Inc., a driver for innovation in the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), has recently joined Si2. Tanner joins the other 100 key players in the semiconductor supply chain, focused on the development and adoption of standards to improve the way integrated circuits are designed and manufactured.
"We joined Si2 because one of its basic goals -- EDA tool interoperability -- is central to our commitment to our products and our customers," said John Zuk, vice president of marketing & strategy for Tanner EDA. "We intend to participate in the Open PDK and OpenAccess coalitions to collaborate and share Tanner EDA's 22 years of technological know-how".
"Si2 constantly strives to offer value and service to our member companies," said Steve Schulz, president and chief executive officer of Si2. "This is evidenced by our ever-increasing membership and new projects such as the OpenPDK Coalition. We are very pleased that Tanner EDA is joining Si2 and bringing its commitment to interoperability to the Initiative."
To hear about many of Si2 project details, accomplishments, and work-in-progress, all are invited to attend the 15th Si2/OpenAccess+ Conference to be held on October 20 in Santa Clara, CA. Detailed information can be found here: http://www.si2.org/?page=1252.
Si2 is the largest organization of industry-leading semiconductor, systems, EDA and manufacturing companies focused on the development and adoption of standards to improve the way integrated circuits are designed and manufactured, in order to speed time-to market, reduce costs, and meet the challenges of sub-micron design. Now in its 22nd year, Si2 is uniquely positioned to enable timely collaboration through dedicated staff and a strong implementation focus driven by its member companies. Si2 represents nearly 100 companies involved in all parts of the silicon supply chain throughout the world. See http://www.si2.org/.
