Launched in 2007 by Cadence Europe the aim of the Cadence Academic Network is to promote the proliferation of leading-edge technologies and methodologies at universities renowned for their engineering and design excellence. A knowledge network among selected European universities, research institutes, industry advisors and Cadence was established to facilitate the sharing of technology expertise in the areas of verification, design and implementation of microelectronic systems.
The DERFAIC group has joined the Cadence Academic Network in May 2010 and quickly become an active member of the network in the areas of Analog Mixed-Signal Design and Wireless Radio Design. Thanks to support from Cadence we are now able to provide state-of-art IC design tools and design methodologies to the researches and students involved in our activities. Also, we have access to a wealth of information and support from the many universities members of the Cadence Academic Network.
