EDA Consortium Teams with JEITA to Expand Japan's Premiere Electronic Design Event
SAN JOSE, California, June 11, 2001¾The Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) and the EDA (Electronic Design Automation) Consortium today announced a joint cooperation agreement in support of the annual Electronic Design and Solution (EDS) Fair. With the support the EDA ConsortiumÕs 119 members companies, the cooperation raises worldwide awareness of the EDS Fair and supports greater participation of global exhibitors and attendees, provides a broader view of EDA technology, expands the EDA market in Japan, and establishes better communication between worldwide EDA companies and other electronic design industries. In its ninth year, the EDS Fair is the most comprehensive event in Japan for designers of electronic products with 90 exhibitors including EDA, IP, FPGA/PLD, IC vendors and design houses.

JEITA is a primary sponsor of the EDS Fair and its subordinate organization, the EDA Technical Committee, substantially manages the EDS Fair. The mission of the EDS Fair is to fulfill todayÕs requirements for new solutions by combining advanced technologies and to contribute to, and further promote, the development and growth of electronics and related industries.

"This cooperation opens the door for new collaborative efforts and enhanced relationships between electronic companies worldwide. We believe our collaboration, through an internationalization of the EDS Fair, will bring substantial benefits to the electronics industry in Japan" said Takashi Kambe, Chairman of the EDA Technical Committee of JEITA and Deputy Division General Manager of Design Technology Development Laboratories, Integrated Circuits Group, SHARP Corporation.

"Our goal was to provide a focused event in Japan for our member companies and we are very pleased that JEITA, as the sponsor of the EDS Fair, has entered into this mutually beneficial agreement with EDA Consortium." said Ray Bingham, Chairman of EDA Consortium and CEO and president of Cadence Design Systems.
