The industry-leading Cadence? Virtuoso? custom IC layout design tools are designed to accelerate your physical layout implementation productivity, enabling you to achieve faster design convergence with higher quality and more differentiated silicon. Our Virtuoso layout design tools support full custom analog, digital, RF, and mixed-signal designs at the device, cell, block, and chip levels.
Virtuoso layout design tool capabilities incrementally build upon each other to help you manage the growing complexity of designs, from advanced full custom polygon editing through flexible schematic-driven layout, through physical and electrical constraint-driven assisted full custom layout, to physical and electrical constraint-driven automated full custom layout:
- Full custom layout
- Schematic-driven layout
- Physical constraint-driven layout
- Electrical constraint-driven layout
- Assisted full custom layout
- Automated full custom layout
Virtuoso layout design tools are seamlessly integrated with the Virtuoso Schematic Editor and the Virtuoso Analog Design Environment circuit design tools, as well as the Cadence Physical Verification System and third-party verification tools.
The Virtuoso platform is the industry’s most silicon-proven, comprehensive, custom IC design platform, trusted in taping out thousands of designs each year for more than 25 years.
