The Open Modeling Calculation Interface (OMCI) provides
for access to
- cell characterization data on the "model" side
- netlist information on the "design" side
The OMCI API is independent of any particular design database schema
or modeling format syntax, providing run-time access to abstractions
for those semantics. Support for any particular schema or format is
accomplished via specialization of C++ classes at the
OMCI source level.
The OMCI is modularized into reasonably independent components isolating
these specializations so client applications need only configure those
parts of the API of interest.
offers a simplified description of both the use cases and architecture of the API
and the Si2 Reference Implementation thereof.
The OAC/OMTAB Joint Data Model Working Group (JDM WG)
directs on-going development of the OMCI. Contact Sumit Das Gupta, for information about participation
in this WG or the sponsoring OAC and OMTAB.
