Silvaco and Singapore University of Technology and Design launch RF IC design collaboration

Silvaco Inc of Santa Clara, CA, USA, a provider of technology computer-aided design (TCAD), circuit simulation and IC CAD electronic design automation (EDA) software tools, is collaborating with the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) to advance and promote integrated circuits (IC) innovation and development in Singapore.

To support the collaboration, Silvaco is providing its full suite of radio frequency integrated circuits (RF IC) design, layout and verification tools to set up SUTD's electrical engineering (EE) lab. The US$5.65m (S$7.91m) joint technology development program is expected to help rapidly expand RF design learning to speed design innovation.

Professor Yeo Kiat Seng, SUTD's Associate Provost for Graduate Studies and International Relations, and Silvaco's CEO David L. Dutton cement the RF IC design collaboration.

"Silvaco's support will enable SUTD to establish the university's EE lab and create a hotbed for advanced and future research in IC design, and develop cutting-edge technologies required to design IC systems for applications in our daily lives, such as consumer electronics including those for mobile and medical devices," comments professor Yeo Kiat Seng, SUTD's Associate Provost for Graduate Studies and International Relations. "The collaboration will help to transform the semiconductor industry in Singapore from a manufacturing focus to a high-value-added and IC design-driven one, as well as to nurture and groom the next generation of engineering leaders in IC design," he adds.

"SUTD is a research-intensive university with innovative research and multi-disciplinary education focused on technology and design that fuels experimentation and breakthroughs," comments Silvaco's CEO David L. Dutton. "This partnership will leverage the strengths of both parties – Silvaco's leading EDA software expertise and SUTD's extensive technology research acumen – to develop new design innovations that will power the next generation of ICs required for leading-edge digital electronics and growing Internet of Things applications."
