Selectively automating non-critical aspects of custom IC design allows engineers to focus on precision-crafting their designs. Cadence circuit design solutions 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.
