Under this initiative, Xilinx, which has its APAC headquarters in Hong Kong, would be offering to C-DAC’s ACTS software for facilitating the VLSI training for its students. The initiative is part of Xilinx’s University Program.

C-DAC’s ACTS association would enable it to effectively introduce to its students the programmable logic design flow for today’s Platform FPGAs with embedded processors and multi-gigabit transceivers. Programmable logic is the fastest growing segment in the semi-conductor industry.
