The OpenAccess Database is the world’s most widely used, open reference database for IC design, with a supporting standard C++ API.  It is superb for developing a stand-alone design tool and can also provide interoperability between EDA tools from different companies. The API is available in scripting languages through our extensions offering if C++ is more than you require.  During this panel discussion, application developers using OpenAccess and OpenAccess extensions will describe their experiences along the way.  The panel will be moderator by OpenAccess Coalition leadership.
