Cadence University Program

In EECS Courses:

Currently, Cadence tools are utilized in the undergraduate level VLSI course, EECE 4385, and are being integrated into a graduate level Digital Circuit Design course, EECS 6342. It is planned to fully integrate the use of Cadence tools into graduate level EECS courses.

In Research Projects:

Faculty and students in the department, specifically those involved with the Radiation Effects and Reliability Group, use Cadence tools extensively in their research. Cadence tools are used for the design, simulation, and layout of analog and digital circuits for radiation effects studies.
