Chip designers chose Scotland

Cadence: one of the worlds leading semiconductor design companies based in california, haven opted to open a new plant and recruit Scottish graduates to staff it!

The plant will be located in Scotlands Silicon Glen, the region of Scotland between Glasgow and Edinburgh (give or take 25 miles as the Glen width!!)

Both Cadence and Synopsis, along with Verilog are market leaders and this news is excellent for Scottish engineers.

It is a testament to Scottish engineering excellence as well as hard work by a few good men and women who really care about Scotlands economic future.
