NOTICE: August 08, 2016 Si2 EMAIL REFLECTOR MAIL IS BEING REJECTED BY SOME COMPANIES
NOTE: Si2 External IP Address Changes
* Recently, Si2 switched network service providers and subsequently, all of its external IP addresses.
* Email reflectors are used by our many Production and Open Standards collaborative research/development working groups.
* If your company uses access control lists to manage email traffic, and you send emails via the Si2 reflector list system, then the following information will be relevant to you.
CONTACT YOUR IT DEPARTMENT TO VERIFY YOUR CURRENT OR FUTURE STATUS:
After the Si2 IP changes, reflector list messages that previously appeared as email coming from 220.127.116.11 will now show as email coming from 18.104.22.168. Any access control lists that reference the old Si2 IP (22.214.171.124), will need to be updated to the new Si2 IP (126.96.36.199) in order to restore previous functionality. Additionally, make sure that your company IT has Si2 white listed!
Manufacturability Coalition (DFMC)
Design for Manufacturability design flows have become
increasingly critical as normal excursions in
semiconductor manufacturing result in significant
variations for yield, power and performance at 45 nm
process nodes and below. Both Process limited yield
(PLY) and Circuit limited yield (CLY). lower
manufacturing profits since these circuits must be
scrapped or sold at a discount because they miss the
power and/or performance targets of a nominal device.
In response to these issues, the
Design for Manufacturability Coalition (DFMC) has
developed a standard interface format that describes a
comprehensive set of
DFM parameters that can verify that a circuit will meet
it’s profit targets. The DFM parameters are defined in
an open-source and extensible standard format called
OpenDFM which provides a common set of DFM parameters to
a wide variety of physical verification and analysis
tools dramatically improving the interface between EDA
Plans for 2012 include: OpenDFM
2.x to include DRC+ and other enhancements, OPEX 1.0 to
open parasitic extraction parameters, and a new
standard, OpenLVS, to cover LVS.
Accomplishments - 2011
OpenDFM 1.1 Physical
Verification standard released, including ESD (Electro
Static Discharge) and Latch Up Checks, Edge Operations
and Edge Checks, and new Targeting
Functions that will improve manufacturability
and development of OPEX 1.0 specification to be
released as a standard in 2012
DRC+ contributed to
accelerate next-generation standard in DRC pattern
