Cadence Palladium Z1 Waveform Render Cloud Pipeline

For the builders of tomorrow, creating the electronic systems that enable smart living will require advanced design technologies on multiple levels—semiconductor, chip packaging, system interconnect, hardware-software integration, system verification, and more. Past approaches to design that address these levels disjointedly are inadequate for the increasing complexity, low-power requirements, and shorter time-to-market challenges that designers face today. Successful companies will thrive by collaborating with ecosystem leaders in electronic design automation, intellectual property, chip fabrication, and other parts of the value chain to create a comprehensive environment for System Design Enablement (SDE). Cadence®custom/analog/RF solutions are a key component of the SDE strategy.

Selectively automating non-critical aspects of custom IC design allows engineers to focus on precision-crafting their designs. Cadence circuit design solutions, including the Virtuoso® Environment, Spectre® Simulation Solutions, and Liberate™ Characterization and Validation Solutions, as well as the specialized electrically aware design (EAD) and advanced-node flows, enable fast and accurate entry of design concepts, which includes managing design intent in a way that flows naturally in the schematic. Using this advanced, parasitic-aware environment, you can abstract and visualize the many interdependencies of an analog, RF, or mixed-signal design to understand and determine their effects on circuit performance.

In addition, to better suite the growing need to improved synthesis and analysis for various hardware designs, Vivado Design Software Sute has been included. An integrated design environment (IDE) with system-to-IC level tools built on a shared scalable data model and a common debug environment. Vivado includes electronic system level (ESL) design tools for synthesizing and verifying C-based algorithmic IP; standards based packaging of both algorithmic and RTL IP for reuse; standards based IP stitching and systems integration of all types of system building blocks; and the verification of blocks and systems
