Non-profit foundation for development, support and licensing of software standards for design automation.
The expressed goal of the Foundation is to act as the governing body of the PDAFlow standards. The Foundation aims to create and maintain its standards with the following overarching principles in mind:
- A sustainable ecosystem for photonic integration.
The members acknowledge that for a sustainable ecosystem using a set of standards, it is paramount that those standards are carried by as broad a consensus as possible. Specifically, the viability of any business using these standards depends critically on the assurance that those standards cannot be exploited, changed or abandoned by any one single entity in any unforeseeable way.
- Standards for data exchange.
The members expressively believe that the challenges of photonic integration can only be met by collaboration between a variety of partners, including but not limited to foundries, software developers, circuits designers and equipment manufacturers. Thus, transparent standards to exchange data seemingly between the partners are needed.
