The following tutorial introduces the user to specific design flow using the Cadence ICFB software. It is by no means the only way to design an integrated circuit using Cadence, nor do we claim that it is the best way to do it. It is, however, a reasonably simple methodology for designing a chip that will be fabricated using the MOSIS foundry service.


We hope that after finishing this tutorial, each of you will have an idea of what Cadence can do and how you will use it this year. Depending on your project, you may also want to use other tools that aren't described here, but you will almost certainly use all the steps described here.

You will probably want to refer to this tutorial as a sort of manual throughout the year.
