Along with expanding chip design talent in Jordan, the collaboration with Golden Electronics will enable Synopsys to build a pipeline of skilled engineers, helping the company expand its engineering base in Jordan by engaging university students and recent engineering graduates, and upgrading their microelectronics design skills.

Synopsys and Golden Electronics are collaborating to increase the number of industry-ready chip design engineers in Jordan. The collaboration is in the form of a very large-scale integration (VLSI) talent acceleration initiative built on Golden Electronics’ acquisition of multiple licenses for Synopsys’ leading electronic design automation (EDA) software, educational design kits and microelectronics curriculum.

“There is incredible worldwide demand for skilled engineers capable of developing state-of-the-art integrated circuits (ICs), and Synopsys has a track record of fostering talent development in emerging technology centers. The opportunity to work with Golden Electronics is an exact fit with our talent and ecosystem nurture strategy and we expect to see them making major progress in increasing the pool of skilled microelectronics engineers in Jordan,” said Robert Li, Vice President – Sales, Synopsys Taiwan and South Asia.

Lack of access to industry-grade design tools for microelectronic design is a common issue facing university students and recent engineering graduates in Jordan. This drew the attention of Synopsys Academic & Research Alliances (SARA), a team dedicated to bridging academia and industry to build the next generation of semiconductor design talent. 

“Golden Electronics is at the forefront of IC development in Jordan. We welcome this key initiative with an industry leader like Synopsys. It provides Golden Electronics with Synopsys industry-grade tools and vital access to the company’s educational design kits and microelectronics curriculum. The combination of technology and teaching materials will allow us to extend our outreach across Jordanian universities and upgrade the skills of engineering students and graduates,” informed Khaldoon Abugharbieh, CEO, Golden Electronics.
