Cadence Opens Research & Development and Support Center in Russia

5/27/2004 - Cadence Design Systems, Inc. announced the opening of its first office in Moscow as the latest in a series of strategic investments by Cadence® in Russia. Ray Bingham, chairman of the Board of the Directors of Cadence Design Systems, Inc. is in Moscow to unveil the new facility, which is the first electronic design automation (EDA) research and development centre opened in Russia by an overseas company.

The Moscow office will house more than 70 employees, who will focus on EDA tool development, including methodology services. It also will serve as Cadence's Russian centre for training, scientific endeavours and large-scale educational programs, as well as local customer support.

"Russia has become a centre of electronic design excellence, with many major global technology companies having facilities here," said Bingham. "There are many exceptionally talented electronic designers and engineers in Russia. This research and development centre will become one of the cornerstones of electronic design excellence in this country, and Cadence is committed to support Russia's growth as a technology leader."

Mike Faster, who was named president and CEO at Cadence on May 12 added, "Cadence is a global provider of EDA technologies and services and needs to be wherever its customers are. I am pleased to support this investment, which represents the latest commitment to our customers in Russia and to helping the country's microelectronics industry flourish."

This collaborative program is designed to benefit Russia's high-tech industry by developing a continuous stream of master's degree graduates with leading-edge skills in electronic design. Mirantis, Inc., a Foster City Calif. company has been providing Russian business expertise to Cadence over the last 3 years and was also instrumental in the recent opening of the Cadence Technology Development Centre in Moscow.
