NTU and EDB launch S$50 million ($36 million) integrated circuit design research center
Date:12/15/2009

og and mixed signal IC design, Singapore's differentiating strategy is to train and build up strong capabilities in this domain.

"NTU is pleased to partner EDB in setting up the Integrated Circuit Design Centre of Excellence, VIRTUS, signalling the need for Singapore to groom more locally based IC design houses to fuel and further foster the growth of the semiconductor ecosystem in Singapore. VIRTUS establishment is of strategic national interest and promises potentially high economic yield," said Professor Kam Chan Hin, Chair, School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE) NTU. "The establishment of VIRTUS is also in line with NTU's strategic thrusts, which encompasses building a reputation for world-class research and developing an innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem."

VIRTUS will also collaborate with world renowned universities, top research institutions and well-known companies in its pursuit of excellence in research and development in IC design and technology.

Among its key partners is Agilent Technologies, the world's premier measurement company and a technology leader in communications, electronics, life sciences and chemical analysis. Agilent is contributing its industry-leading suite of simulation software worth some S$28 million to VIRTUS. NTU and Agilent signed a Memorandum of Understanding today to seal their partnership.

"As the technology leader in electronic design automation tools, Agilent is pleased to collaborate with the Integrated Circuit Design Centre of Excellence, VIRTUS, through the contribution of our industry-leading suite of simulation software," said Rob Young, General Manager at Agilent Technologies Singapore. "Using our design simulation software, the centre's IC designers will reduce the time needed to design next-generation integrated circuits that will consume less power and have more features packed into a smaller footprint. This means the Centre can speed up the commercialisation of
