Electrical & Computer Engineering
Cadence 2013 University Program
Cadence provides a
set of electronic design automation (EDA) tools
for electronics design.
We are using the
Cadence tools in
academic research to design and layout
SiGe Bipolar test circuits for 40 - 80 Gb/s data generation.
The IBM SiGe 7HP process is the target process for this project.
Interconnect group delay, clock and data distribution are being
studied as well as the design of very high speed linear feedback shift
registers and multiplexers. Cadence tools are also being used in
millimeter-wave communication circuits and high-speed serial link
transceivers in 130-nm and 90-nm CMOS technology. The UMC 0.13-um logic
process and the IBM CMOS 10SF are the target process. Specifically, we
are designing T/R switches, low-noise amplifiers, power amplifiers and
The ECE department
site license for Cadence includes the following
University Software Program Bundles
* Custom Integrated Circuits Bundle
* Digital Integrated Circuits
* Verification Bundle
* Packaging and Board Bundle
Cadence tools are installed on the
ECE and Engineering lab Linux workstations and available under
/ece/cadence. If you do not find the Cadence tool that you are looking
would like to find out if a specific tool is available for download and
your workstation, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
