Cadence Design Systems, Inc., has graciously provided use of their IC and PCB design software for students of our college. In our effort to provide both our undergraduate and graduates with real-world experience we are gradually incorporating the use of advanced EDA (Electronic Design Automation) software in the teaching and research in VLSI design and VLSI Design Automation. Software such as that provided by Cadence allows the students to acquire valuable experience in all phases of the design, simulation and testing of analog, digital and mixed-signal integrated circuits as well as board-level designs.
