Intel Corporation is an American multinational semiconductor chip maker corporation headquartered in Santa Clara, California. Intel is the world's largest and highest valued semiconductor chip maker, based on revenue. It is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers. Intel Corporation, founded on July 18, 1968, is a portmanteau of Integrated Electronics (the fact that "intel" is the term for intelligence information was also quite suitable). Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphic chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing. Founded by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore and widely associated with the executive leadership and vision of Andrew Grove, Intel combines advanced chip design capability with a leading-edge manufacturing capability. Though Intel was originally known primarily to engineers and technologists, its "Intel Inside" advertising campaign of the 1990s made it and its Pentium processor household names.

Ciranova's objective is to deliver a quantum productivity advance in custom IC physical design for nanometer silicon geometries. Ciranova™ customers get more complex, higher-performance analog, mixed-signal and RF ICs to market sooner and at lower cost than their competitors-especially at 65nm and below.Analog, mixed-signal and RF circuits are a major differentiator and a major design challenge in modern SoC-based electronics. Both the circuit design and the complexity of the underlying silicon have changed dramatically; yet the physical design-schematic, layout editing, and extensive hand manipulation of low-level geometry-is fundamentally the same as it was in the early 1990's.Ciranova changes this. Its mission is not to build new schematic or layout editors, but to add automation at both the PCell and circuit levels that works with your existing flow to dramatically reduce your design effort.

Kilroy Realty Corporation Trusts & Funds | Los Angeles, CA

Kilroy Realty corp KRC has successfully operated in West Coast commercial real estate markets for more than six decades. We have built deep experience in the region serving its many dynamic economic centers across multiple business cycles and operating environments. Today, we operate a portfolio of high quality commercial properties totaling more than 12.5 million square feet that span top coastal market locations from Seattle to San Diego. We serve a broadly diversified roster of industries, including many of the region’s leading firms in technology, telecommunications, engineering, entertainment, healthcare, biotechnology, and professional services. A fully integrated real estate enterprise Our decades of experience have taught us the wisdom of mastering all the disciplines of our profession. KRC's core management capabilities encompass all aspects of real estate, including property and land acquisition, financing and property development, construction management, leasing and property operations, and long-term strategic portfolio development. This integrated approach to real estate ownership produces efficiencies throughout our enterprise. It also creates a sound base from which to navigate challenging conditions and capitalize on nascent opportunities that are both part of a normal real estate business cycle. In 1997, we became a publicly traded real estate investment trust. Our common stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange and, in 2001, was added to the S&P MidCap 400 Index. In 2010, our publicly traded debt securities were rated investment grade by Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s. Public ownership and investment grade debt ratings both enhance our access to a variety of financing sources at attractive rates, and supports our ability to fund growth while also maintaining a strong and flexible capital structure. A disciplined business strategy Operating in one of the most dynamic economic regions of the world has shaped our business strategy at KRC. Our primary goal is to deliver a steady stream of high quality, adaptable and productive work environments for the wide range of industries attracted to the vibrant economic centers dotting the west coast of the United States. We are opportunistic and disciplined in our approach to growth. We seek to capitalize on inflection points in a real estate cycle to add quality assets to our portfolio at substantial discounts to long-term value, through either acquisition or development. Since early 2010, we have significantly increased our asset base via acquisition, purchasing a variety of properties that meet our strict standards for quality, location, amenities and long-term appreciation potential, at what we consider to be at or near cyclically low prices. Our acquisition strategy targets two distinct opportunities: best-in-class properties that are unique and irreplaceable within their specific markets and selling at or below replacement value; and well-located, fundamentally sound properties that represent opportunities to substantially increase value over time via disciplined investment and/or improved property management and marketing. In today’s real estate environment, we continue to see and evaluate both types of acquisition opportunities. We also manage our portfolio of office properties to continually enhance its overall value. We regularly sell mature assets and recycle the capital into higher value properties, upgrading the quality of our portfolio while maintaining a healthy balance sheet and enhancing the potential returns we can generate for our shareholders. Strong and broad-based development experience When market conditions support it, we have a bias toward development, preferring to control the location, design and amenities of the properties we add to our portfolio. Such control can often produce a more appealing and functional property for our tenants and a better outcome for our shareholders. We maintain an active, multi-year development program, focusing on economically dynamic locations where anticipated long-term demand is strong, supply is habitually limited and barriers to entry are formidable. Typically this means the top coastal submarkets that offer both a vibrant economic backdrop for businesses and a unique quality of life for their employees.

Cadence Design Systems, Inc. Computer Software - San Jose, CA

To keep pace with market demand for more performance and functionality in today’s mobile phones, digital cameras, computers, automotive systems and other electronics products, manufacturers pack billions of transistors onto a single chip. This massive integration parallels the shift to ever-smaller process geometries, where the chip’s transistors and other physical features can be smaller than the wavelength of light used to print them. Designing and manufacturing semiconductor devices with such phenomenal scale, complexity and technological challenges would not be possible without electronic design automation (EDA). It is essential for everything from verifying that the myriad transistors do what the designer intended to dealing with physical effects on electrons traveling miles of wires with widths sometimes measuring less than 100 nanometers. Cadence Design Systems is a leading global 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
