SynopsysSynopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNPS) is the world leader in electronic design automation (EDA), supplying the global electronics market with the software, intellectual property (IP) and services used in semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing. Synopsys’ comprehensive, integrated portfolio of implementation, verification, IP, manufacturing and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) solutions helps address the key challenges designers and manufacturers face today, such as power and yield management, software-to-silicon verification and time-to-results. These technology-leading solutions help give Synopsys customers a competitive edge in bringing the best products to market quickly while reducing costs and schedule risk.


CadenceCadence Design Systems is the world's leading EDA company. Cadence customers use our software, hardware, and services to overcome a range of technical and economic hurdles.Our technologies help customers create mobile devices with longer battery life. Designers of ICs for game consoles and other consumer electronics speed their products to market using our hardware simulators to run software on a ‘virtual’ chip—long before the actual chip exists. We bridge the traditional gap between chip designers and fabrication facilities, so that manufacturing challenges can be addressed early in the design stage. And our custom IC design platform enables designers to harmonize the divergent worlds of analog and digital design to create some of the most advanced mixed-signal system on chip (SoC) designs. These are just a few of the many essential Cadence solutions that drive the success of leading IC and electronic systems companies.


SilTerraSilterra is a project of strategic national interest to promote front-end semiconductor manufacturing and a catalyst for high technology investments in Malaysia. It was founded in November 1995 as Wafer Technology (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd and was renamed to Silterra Malaysia Sdn Bhd in December 1999. We broke ground on our first manufacturing facility in Kulim, Malaysia in June 1999 and produced working silicon in November 2000. We recorded initial revenue in February 2001, 18 months following groundbreaking and equivalent to world-class time to revenue performance. We have developed advanced CMOS Logic, High Voltage and Mixed Signal/Radio Frequency process technologies for our customers since then. Silterra’s commitment to meet high wafer manufacturing standards helped us win the 2002 Top Fab Award, given annually by the editorial staff of Semiconductor International. This achievement not only reflects our strength in operations and technology development, but also our commitment to excellence

MIGHTThe MALAYSIAN INDUSTRY-GOVERNMENT GROUP FOR HIGH TECHNOLOGY (MIGHT) was launched as an independent and non-profit organization that is driven by a membership drawn from both the public and private sectors. MIGHT predominant role is to enable consensus building and coordination for Industry-Government partnership in high technology. It provides strategic technology inputs for Industry and Government, nurtures technology-based enterprises and entrepreneurship as well as prepares knowledge workers relevant to strategic and high technology industry needs. As an organization under the purview of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), MIGHT represents the Ministry in interfacing with the Industry to promote technology uptake in business.


MIMsRecognizing the information age as an era of great opportunity, the Malaysian Government had the foresight to develop the country’s manufacturing and technology capabilities to meet the future trend. Recognizing the need to move upstream and climb the value chain into design, development and innovation, MIMs was established. MIMs is committed to provide hands on industrial training and apprenticeship programmes, backed by a facility that is equipped with the latest state of the art EDA tools, test and prototyping facilities.
