Elizabeth Corcoran writes an excellent article in Forbes on the increasing levels of usage for cadence in India. Cadence, a well known name in the electronic design automation(EDA)technologies arena & in engineering services. The company is a driving force behind the emergence of several consumer electronic devices like cell phones ,video player etc. The article motes,
Cadence, now wants to fuel the next wave of offshoring, one that takes not just the help desk but the engineering department abroad. Cadence sells its tools throughout the world. But while China is becoming the world's manufacturing center, India is using its software expertise to leap into the next innovative zone: designing chips. Offshoring chip design promises to turbocharge business, letting companies produce more products quicker than ever, and at low prices. Imagine it and India's tech wizards will design it, then Chinese factories will churn out the chips for it: It's just-in-time invention.
Read my related note on offshore product development. Every new chip is the basis for a score of devices; every device sparks ideas for a host of software applications. Last year Cadence trained more than 2,000 students and engineers in India to use its tools. The company offers payment schemes that let small outfits pay for its technology as their work brings in revenues. CK.Prahalad recently said innovation shall get cheaper.
