Cadence Announces $5M Endowment To Advance Research
Cadence Design Systems has announced the establishment of the Cadence Design Systems Professorship Fund for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Stephen A. Schwarzman College of Computing.
The $5M fund will enable the college to establish a full professorship for outstanding faculty with research and teaching interests in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) or data analytics and can also provide career development opportunities for rising stars doing cutting-edge research in these areas.
“We're delighted to support MIT's efforts to advance innovation in the exciting fields of AI, ML and data analytics,” said Lip-Bu Tan, chief executive officer of Cadence. “These transformative technologies are key to the computational software industry and Cadence, and we look forward to enabling the acceleration of MIT's groundbreaking research in these areas. I was very fortunate to have obtained my master of science degree in nuclear engineering from MIT where I focused my studies on system simulation analysis, so this endowment is very personal to me.”
“Scholars within the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing are at the forefront of computing research and education. Cadence's generous gift is providing vital new resources for the college in supporting these faculty as they deliver the latest advances in computing and AI,” says Daniel Huttenlocher, dean of the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing. “I'm extremely grateful to Cadence for their contribution and commitment to MIT and the college.”
Establishing the new fund at MIT is part of Cadence's overall commitment to advancing education and fostering innovation in the burgeoning fields of AI, ML and data analytics.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
