CVR Engineering Students Benefit from Cadence VLSI Design Tools

12/31/2003 - CVR College of Engineering, the fastest growing engineering college in Andhra Pradesh, will receive VLSI design software from Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NYSE:CDN) through its University Software Program for CVR's new Center for Excellence in VLSI Design. The Center will have industry-standard state-of-art VLSI EDA tools. The donated software consists of Cadence® simulation, verification, layout and place-and-route tools, as well as EncounterTM RTL Compiler—a global synthesis technology-based solution that delivers the highest quality of silicon - speed, area, and power as measured with wires.

Cadence is also providing a ready-to-deploy semester-long curriculum on the digital implementation flow for system-on-chip (SoC) designs, supported by the "Train the Trainer" program, in which Cadence application engineers train faculty on Cadence tools.

In addition to instructing CVR students, the Center will train the faculty of other engineering colleges via short-term/certificate courses. This will enable the students of CVR to be readily absorbed by the VLSI design industry due to the fact that they are exposed to the latest industry-leading EDA tools.

"Through our University Software Program, Cadence continues to demonstrate its commitment to enhancing the quality and quantity of electrical engineers in India," said Mr. Himanshu Singh, executive director, India & SAARC Countries, Cadence Design Systems (I) Pvt. Ltd. "Our engagement with CVR further emphasizes this, and it will benefit the Indian electronic design industry by enhancing the pool of VLSI design engineers."

"CVR continues to engage with leading industries under its industry-institution program so as to help students gain access to industry-standard tools. The Center for VLSI Design is another step in that direction. These are the same tools that are widely used in the industry today to design state-of-art VLSI chips, and our students will be productive right on day one of the job," said Dr. Raghava Cherabuddi, president, CVR College of Engineering.
