Cadence Design Systems Inc. has signed a memorandum of understanding with China's Ministry of Education (MOE) to develop an IC design training program.

The program will initially focus on nine of China's top universities such as Peking University and Tsinghua University, Beijing; Fudan University, Jiaotong University and Southeast University, Jiangsu; Zhejiang University and Huazhong University of Science & Technology, Hubei; Xidian University, Shanxi; and Chengdu Electronic Science and Technology University, Sichuan. Cadence will work directly with each university to determine the details of the program. The Chinese government aims to train 300 students every year per university at the master's and doctorate levels.

In addition to providing input to the development of the universities' curricula, Cadence will offer advanced IC design and EDA courses plus practical laboratory sessions to cover the complete IC design cycle, from the initial concept to the realization of complete, automated electronic design solutions.

Specific courses will be offered in functional verification, digital IC design, customer IC design, design for manufacturing and silicon-package-board co-design. Teaching tools and aids, including course books, laboratory reference materials and related statistics, will be included.
