Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) recently announced that Takumi Technology has joined the Design-for-Manufacturability Coalition (DFMC) which will build on previous efforts to ensure that ICs can be manufactured according to the original design intent.

"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, 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 part of it," he added.

"We are pleased to welcome Takumi into the DFMC," said Steve Schulz, president and CEO, Si2. "Their special expertise in DFM solutions currently being used by major semiconductor companies and foundries will be of great value as the DFMC works toward helping the design and manufacturing realms meet," he added.

DFMC's objectives
The purpose of the DFMC is to specify open-standards for software interfaces between EDA software tools and manufacturing software. The specification includes standard terminology definitions, semantics and exchange formats for relevant manufacturing information. It also includes standard software API for models describing different manufacturing processes, yield mechanisms and circuit behaviors.
