The Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) will hold their annual OpenAccess+ Conference on October 20, 2010 in Santa Clara, CA. The Si2 OpenAccess+ Conference will cover the inter-related areas of OpenAccess, Design for Manufacturability (DFM), Low Power design and the newest Coalition for Open PDKs. The event will include a DFM session on the OpenDFM meta language standard, which describes DRC and DFM checks in a tool-agnostic fashion. The conference will provide updates on the industry adoption of OpenAccess and plans for the future for all coalitions.
