iPDK integration into Gateway Schematic Capture

This webinar will provide a discussion of the integration of iPDK design kits into the Gateway tool flow. iPDKs are fast becoming the prefered method for foundries to release process designs kits to customers. The adoption of the standard is becoming a ubiquitous feature for EDA vendors in the schematic capture and layout business. The webinar will cover how to integrate iPDKs into Gateway including some of the pitfalls and gaps in the current iPDK standard.

What attendees will learn:

  • Key challenges of iPDK adoption
  • OpenAccess integration
    • Importing OpenAccess designs into Gateway
    • Exporting designs to OpenAccess
  • Integrating iPDK into Gateway Design flow
    • Loading iPDK collateral into Gateway
    • Adding iPDK libraries to workspaces
    • Using iPDK libraries in designs.
    • Netlisting with iPDK symbols.
