Cadence Hosts Technology Symposium for Asia-Pacific Region

8/8/2003 - Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CDN) announced its second Asia Cadence Technology Symposium (ACTS) for design engineers across the Asia-Pacific region. ACTS 2003 will begin Aug. 26 and conclude Sept. 5. The success of ACTS 2002, which attracted more than 1,600 electronic design engineers and engineering managers, paved the way for ACTS 2003.

The theme of ACTS 2003 is "Design to Volume," a reference to the Cadence goal of helping customers bring products to market successfully—from initial design concept to products shipping in volume. At ACTS, Cadence will demonstrate how customers can use integrated design platforms to address all the challenges of electronic design. These technologies include the Cadence® EncounterTM digital IC design platform, unified verification with the IncisiveTM verification platform, innovative silicon-package-board co-design methodologies, and analog, custom-digital, and mixed-signal solutions.

ACTS 2003 provides a splendid opportunity for engineers, designers and managers working in electronics design to discuss and explore the evolution in the EDA industry and at Cadence. Topics will include custom IC Design, logic design, system-level design, PCB design, digital design, system verification and IC packaging design. The schedule for ACTS 2003 is Aug. 26, Hsinchu; Aug. 29, Seoul; Sept. 2, Shanghai; and Sept. 5, Beijing. EDN Asia, Electronic Engineering Times Asia, HP, IBM and Sun Microsystems are the official event sponsors.
