Cadence Presents Outsourcing Design: A Good Thing or a Bad Thing?

5/27/2003 - There has been much debate over outsourcing design. Some have criticized EDA vendors for offering in-house design services because it puts these companies in direct competition with their customers. But EDA companies that offer in-house design services say the move allows them to help direct innovation and better serve customers' next-generation design needs. Many smaller companies cannot compete without the use of outside design expertise. Will the move to 90-nanometer and below process nodes make outsourcing even more necessary? This panel will explore where outsourcing is a good solution and what makes for good outsourcing partnerships.
