              10th OpenAccess+ Conference: April 3, 2007 - Presentations







Sun Microsystems

Santa Clara Conference


4030 George Sellon Circle,

Santa Clara, CA 95054



The10th OpenAccess+ Conference focused on progress in achieving interoperability, a fundamental promise of OpenAccess. Important EDA tool releases and progress by end-users using OpenAccess indicates that the promise of interoperability is happening as we speak. The conference explored new advances in OpenAccess adoption, as well as related advances in modeling of process variations which are essential for 65nm and lower technology nodes. A demo session/mixer was held after the conference.
