The Si2 Design-for-Manufacturability Coalition has welcomed Takumi Technology as its newest member. Takumi follows in the footsteps of Intel, Infineon, Mentor Graphics, UMC and STARC, who joined the association in January. Si2 was founded to maintain standards between EDA software tools and manufacturing software and now represents nearly 100 companies in all areas of the silicon supply chain.
“As one of the early players in delivering DFM solutions to customers, Takumi had to deal with multiple semantics and data formats,” said Akifumi Goto, President and CEO of Takumi Technology. “Lack of standards force customers and solution providers to spend time and resources on integration issues rather than on real DFM issues. We are very happy to see this standardization effort and glad to be a part of it.”
