Cadence expands Berkeley EDA labs

September 24, 2007 – Cadence Design Systems Inc. has opened a new facility for its research labs near the U. of California/Berkeley, to host research for next-generation electronic design automation (EDA) challenges.

The new, larger location (now 21,000 sq. ft) of the labs, which serves as the core facility for Cadence’s worldwide advanced research activities, includes work on multiple scientific disciplines and applications to design automation, and is “a unique and successful model of an applied research lab that has a broad spectrum of engagements with the global academic community, within Cadence and with customers around the world,” noted labs director Andreas Kuehlmann, in a statement.

As part of the new lab opening celebration, Cadence also is giving $10,000 to the science and math departments at Berkeley High School, for use in developing curriculum focusing on problem-solving skills.
