Cadence software in action at Polytechnique
Cadence tools are used to support the laboratories of
four courses and they are used in several research projects. The four courses
using the tools at Polytechnique are
Some research projects using Cadence include:
The first two classes are introductory VLSI courses taught at the undergraduate
and graduate levels. Some 100 students are introduced to the Cadence tools
every year. In these course, Cadence is used as a layout tools to do simple
cells in order to understand layout, design rules and process layers. The
other classes are advances courses in VLSI design of digital ICs and analog
ICs, or related topics. In several cases Cadence is used to create and validate physical designs.
On the order of 100 students every year gain a more thorough hands on experience
with the tool suite as part of advanced course and thesis projects.
Developing an inductive fault analysis toolsuite on top of
Cadence using skill routines.
Implementing a clustering chip based on the fuzzy ART neural
Develop demonstrator chips for a design methodology of high
speed circuits based on the TSPC design style. A 3*3 convolver is used
as the driving project.
Develop a TSPC cell library for the TSMC 0.35, 0.18 and 0.13 micron technology.
Physical design of an ancilary data processor chip that insert
and extract ancillary data from a digital video stream.
Implementation of various mised-signal circuits and systems
dedicated for sensors interfaces and implantable stimulators.
Implementaion of high performance analog functions such as
preamlifiers, filters, ADC, ..
Implementation of active pixe1 arrays dedicated for image
