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

The MoU is expected to set the framework for the China National IC Design Talent Incubation Project. The program will initially focus on nine of China's top universities. Cadence will provide wide-ranging support for the initiative, from IC design and EDA courses to jointly developed design projects.

The following universities have been selected by the MOE to participate in the program: 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 & Technology University, Sichuan. Cadence will work directly with each university to determine the details of the program. The government's target is to train 300 students per year, per university at the master's and doctorate levels.

In addition to providing input to the development of the universities' curricula, Cadence will provide 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.
