Cadence Academic Network
The Cadence Academic Network was launched in 2007 by Cadence EMEA. The aim is to promote the proliferation of leading-edge technologies and methodologies at universities renowned for their engineering and design excellence. A knowledge network among selected universities, research institutes, industry advisors and Cadence was established to facilitate the sharing of technology expertise in the areas of verification, design and implementation of microelectronic systems. The Cadence Academic Network, therefore, significantly support and improve the universities activities.
The Academic Network became an integral part of CDNLive! where universities and industry members are offered a knowledge exchange platform in order to demonstrate scientific achievements, present ideas and establish further collaborations.
The Cadence Academic Network manages a page for discussion and opportunities on LinkedIn, and information can also be found on the Cadence Academic Network webpage. On LinkedIn, the groups are moderated by the lead institutions of the Academic Network ensuring a constant flow of reviewed information relevant to academia.
The Institute of Electronics Engineering became a member of the Cadence Academic Network in the year 2008. The institutes activities in the network encompass the use of Cadence-IC-design-tools for educational and scientific purposes. These include the software Virtuoso Schematic Editor, Virtuoso Analog Design Environment, Virtuoso Layout Suite, Virtuoso Spectre Circuit Simulator und Cadence QRC Extraction.
