[mos-ak] Si2 Announces Acquisition of the Compact Model Council

Standard SPICE Models, API, and Language Foundational to Industry

AUSTIN, Texas — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 31, 2013 — The Silicon Integration Initiative (Si2) has announced the acquisition of the Compact Model Council (CMC). The CMC, formed in 1996, develops and standardizes compact models of electronic devices used within commercial circuit simulators across the electronics industry, including virtually all SPICE-class simulation. The CMC will be renamed the Compact Model Coalition to blend with Si2's organizational structure. The CMC, represented by 37 member companies, supports 20 active subcommittees and has produced over a dozen widely-used standard device models, modeling API, and SPICE language standard.

Details of the transfer and future plans will be presented at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) to be held in Austin, TX from June 2-6. The first presentation will be at the Si2 25th Anniversary Luncheon Celebration on June 3, 12-1:30 PM in Room 9ABC in the Austin Convention Center. The luncheon is free of charge. Other presentations are scheduled in the Si2 Booth #1427 on the DAC exhibit floor at: June 4 - 10:30AM and 4:30PM, and June 5 - 1:30PM.
