Business Wire

AUSTIN, Texas -- September 17, 2013

The Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) announced six new members of Si2’s
OpenAccess Coalition (OAC): Calexeda, Fractal Technologies, Lattice
Semiconductor (NASDAQ: LSCC), Micron Technologies (NASDAQ: MU), PDF Solutions
(NASDAQ: PDFS), and Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM). There are currently 38 corporate
member companies in the OpenAccess Coalition.

The OpenAccess interoperability platform is a standard application programming
interface (API) and associated reference database that gives chip designers a
common environment for developing and implementing software tools used for
integrated circuit (IC) design. OpenAccess is based on an open and extensible
architecture, allowing chip designers the ability to integrate and use the
most effective design tools available, regardless of vendor. For the past
decade, many of world’s most complex digital, analog, and mixed signal IC
designs have been created using the OpenAccess platform. OpenAccess Coalition
members set the direction on the new features added into the API and the
reference database. Additional information on the OAC can be found here:

“OpenAccess continues to offer strong and increasing value that spans the
semiconductor supply chain, as evidenced by these new members,” said Steve
Schulz, president and chief executive officer of Si2. “New features like the
common scripting framework, multi-threading, and multi-patterning, as well as
ongoing capacity and performance improvements benefit everyone using the
OpenAccess ecosystem. We are very pleased that these companies have joined the
OAC and are committed to bringing their special knowledge into the Coalition
to support the future needs of industry.”

To see the latest information on OpenAccess, as well as other Si2 projects,
