Cadence Academic Network

“We are proud to be the first university in Latin America to become a lead university for “Embedded Systems Development and Verification” methodologies at the Cadence Academic Network. This participation in the academic network from Cadence Design Systems will allow us to share experiences with fellow universities and acquiring expertise in education, training and research.”

“The Academic Network was launched by Cadence in 2007. The aim was to promote the proliferation of leading-edge technologies and methodologies at universities renowned for their engineering and design excellence. A knowledge network among selected 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.” Cadence Academic Network
