As part of its globalization strategy, Cadence Design Systems said it will open its first office in Moscow.

The latest in a series of strategic investments by Cadence in Russia, the new facility is the first electronic design automation research and development center opened in Russia by an overseas company.

The Moscow office will house more than 70 employees focusing on EDA tool development, including methodology services. It also will serve as Cadence's Russian center for training, scientific research, educational programs and as a local customer support center.

Ray Bingham, board chairman, said, "Russia has become a center of electronic design excellence, with many major global technology companies having facilities here. There are many exceptionally talented electronic designers and engineers in Russia. This research and development center will become one of the cornerstones of electronic design excellence in this country, and Cadence is committed to support Russia's growth as a technology leader."

Michael Fister, the new president and CEO of Cadence said the investment "represents the latest commitment to our customers in Russia and to helping the country's microelectronics industry flourish." Cadence also sponsors a master's program in analog/mixed-signal and SoC design at the Moscow Institute of Electronic Technology. The collaborative program is designed to benefit Russia's high-tech industry by developing a continuous stream of master's degree graduates with advanced skills in electronic design.

Mirantis Inc. has been assisting Cadence in Russia over the last three years and was also instrumental in the recent opening of the Cadence Technology Development Center in Moscow.
