IPL Alliance Luncheon: Reaping the Benefits of iPDKs

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012
Golden Gate Ballroom, Marriott Hotel.
55 Fourth Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

Interoperable PDKs (iPDKs) benefit the entire custom design ecosystem. Semiconductor foundries and IDMs create iPDKs to reduce their PDK development, validation, support and distribution costs while enabling advanced design flows and multiple EDA tool support. All leading foundries today are delivering iPDKs. Chip designers now enjoy access to best-in-class tools, interoperable flows, and improved productivity. At the 6th Annual IPL Luncheon, presenters from multiple foundries will highlight the benefits of iPDK standard and their experiences in developing and deploying foundry iPDKs. The IPL Alliance will present an update on the current and future IPL projects.
