IPL Dinner at DAC 2013

iPDKs: A Thriving PDK Standard

Tuesday, June 4, 2013
6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Austin Hilton Hotel, Grand Ballroom G

Foundry support for interoperable PDKs (iPDKs) continues to grow. As of 2012, 4 of the top 5 semiconductor pure-play foundries have joined the IPL Alliance, and all the top 5 foundries have provided customers with iPDKs. 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. Chip designers now enjoy access to best-in-class tools, interoperable flows, and improved productivity.

At the 7th Annual IPL Luncheon, IPL Alliance presenters will highlight the benefits of the iPDK standard and their experiences in developing and deploying foundry iPDKs. The IPL Alliance will also present an update on current and future projects as well as collaboration with other industry initiatives.
