Cadence Design Systems and MatrixOne have formed a strategic alliance to produce a suite of product lifecycle management (PLM) software.
The new products will enable designers to synchronise their activities across software, electronic and mechanical design disciplines as well as allowing OEMs, semiconductor companies and electronic manufacturing services (EMS) providers to work collaboratively.
Key technologies from both companies will be combined to create new collaborative design, component supplier management and design for supply chain solutions.
Technologies recently acquired by Cadence from SpinCircuit and the Thales Group will be integrated with design data management, change management and collaboration technologies from MatrixOne to create the new offerings. These new products will be integrated with Cadence’s electronic design products and MatrixOne’s PLM solutions.
The new solutions are scheduled for broad distribution during the second half of this year. Initial offerings will be previewed at the Design Automation Conference in Anaheim, CA in June.
