-- Joint Master's Program Trains Analog/Mixed-Signal Engineers for Russia's Growing High-tech Industry
MOSCOW, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- National Research University of Electronic Technology (MIET) and Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNPS), a global leader providing software, IP and services used to accelerate innovation in chips and electronic systems, today announced the addition of new courses to the Synopsys-MIET two-year master's program that will enable large-scale use of Synopsys' Galaxy Custom Designer® in an educational environment. With these additional courses, Synopsys-MIET master's program students will enhance their knowledge and skills to become highly qualified specialists ready to address the rapidly growing demand for analog/mixed-signal and custom chip design in Russia.
"Our collaboration with Synopsys makes it possible for us to provide our joint program students with a state-of-the-art educational environment with fully licensed versions of Synopsys' comprehensive, industry-leading electronic design automation University Tools Package, including Galaxy Custom Designer, and up-to-date customized curricula," said MIET Rector Yuri A. Chaplygin, member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. "To date, 129 graduate students and four students with Ph.D.'s have graduated from the Synopsys-MIET joint program and now work at leading semiconductor companies, contributing to Russia's growing high-tech industry."
"We appreciate the great work MIET and Synopsys are doing in education enhancing student's knowledge. Mikron has a long history of cooperation with MIET; many graduates started their careers at Mikron. Sixteen years ago we established a basic chair of 'Submicron VLSI technology' in MIET with a view to preparing qualified personnel for our foundry and design labs," said Gennady Krasnikov, head of Mikron JSC.
"MIET's cooperation with Synopsys reaffirms the university's role as Russia's premier institution for technical education," said Gregor Wiethaler, area sales director for Synopsys. "Synopsys invests in this educational program because we recognize the importance of preparing the next generation of engineers in Russia for careers in analog and custom design. Russia's high-tech industry shows great potential and Synopsys looks forward to seeing the contributions these graduates can make to the country's microelectronics design industry."
Galaxy Custom Designer in the Synopsys-MIET Master's Program
The four new analog/mixed signal courses will augment the existing Synopsys-MIET two-year master's program. Each student in the program will now have access to a fully licensed version of Synopsys' electronic design automation (EDA) University Tools Package that includes Galaxy Custom Designer. The curriculum, developed by Synopsys Armenia Educational Department as part of the Synopsys Worldwide University Program, is comprised of ten courses and more than 60 labs and course projects. To keep the program up to date, Synopsys and MIET regularly evaluate and adjust the curriculum and technologies to ensure they adequately address current industry needs and requirements.
Galaxy Custom Designer® leverages Synopsys' Galaxy™ Design Platform to provide a unified solution for cell-based and custom designs, thereby enhancing SoC design efficiency and productivity. Built from the ground up, Custom Designer was architected for productivity. It is the first-ever custom implementation solution built on an open architecture supporting interoperable process design kits (PDKs) from leading foundries. Custom Designer delivers unmatched productivity with a common use model for simulation, analysis, parasitic extraction and physical verification.
In addition to facilitating innovation with its open architecture, Custom Designer dramatically enhances productivity by seamlessly bridging the gap between the historically disparate worlds of digital and custom design. Custom Designer enables complete data transparency with Synopsys' IC Compiler™ physical implementation solution, allowing the exchange of vital information during floorplanning, placement, routing and final chip editing to reduce time-consuming design iterations.
To enable state-of-the-art IC design in an educational environment without violating IP restrictions, Synopsys provides students with educational resources such as educational design kits (EDKs) and iPDKs for 90-nanometer (nm) and 32/28-nm technologies.
The iPDKs are specifically intended for use with Synopsys' Galaxy Custom Designer in an educational environment.
Building on the program's achievements Synopsys and MIET are extending their joint educational master's program at MIET for another two years. The original agreement was signed in 2006 with a focus on training highly qualified specialists in the field of IC Design at the Synopsys-MIET Educational Center. Cooperation has expanded to other domains such as participation of Synopsys-MIET program students in the Annual International Microelectronics Olympiad of Armenia, MB-JASS. To stimulate Russian students' interest in microelectronics, the program students launched a new initiative in June of this year to provide lectures to Zelenograd's school students. Synopsys-MIET program volunteers worked together with the Summer School of MIET "Computer Learning Center," the leading training center of Zelenogradsky Administrative Okrug, to present school students with a series of lectures about IC manufacturing and design.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
