Cadence Academic Network Activities

The RF Communication Circuits Laboratory (Radio Frequency Communication Circuits) joined Cadence Academic Network in 2007 in order to interact with other universities using Cadence tools and to share the technical expertise.

Cadence's Custom IC design tools play an important role in our practices. Some of the Cadence tools we use are Virtuoso Schematic Editor, Virtuoso Analog Design Environment, Virtuoso Spectre Circuit Simulator, Virtuoso Layout Suite, Cadence QRC Extraction and Cadence OrCAD.

We offer several courses that teach the use of Cadence tools in Analog RF IC Design. Here are some examples:

TLT-8107 Basic Communication Circuits-2. Cadence tools are used in the simulation exercises.

TLT-8207 Communication Circuits and Modules-1. Cadence tools are used in the simulation exercises.

TLT-8507 Communication Circuits and Modules-2. Cadence tools are used in the simulation exercises.

TLT-8307 RF-ASIC Design-1. The project work includes designing an oscillator and drawing the layout on the Cadence 90nm Generic PDK.

TLT-8607 RF-ASIC Design-2. The project work is a detailed design of an oscillator, also using the Cadence 90nm Generic PDK.


Cadence tools are extensively used in our research and featured in our publications. Click here for a list of recent important publications of the RF Communication Circuits Laboratory.
