We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming...

Comments(0)Filed under: Custom IC Design, Virtuoso, Virtuoso IC 6.1.3, ViVa-XL, Virtuoso Analog Design Environment, IC 6.1

I thought I would have time for a regular TYDKAV (Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso) article this week before I go on vacation, but you know how it is when you're trying to get out of the office for a week.  Things just seem to pile up higher than usual.

So in place of the usual witty repartee and pithy comments, I'll leave you with some pointers to some of the Virtuoso webinars that have been posted on Sourcelink recently.  They've called these the 300-series webinars, a college course numbering analogy to let you know that you'll be getting a bit more technical depth and fewer colorful marketing slides...

Webinar 302: Minding the Gaps in Design Team Communication

This presentation explores the Virtuoso unified constraint system.  It discusses the usage of electrical and physical constraints in the front-to-back design flow and illustrates how the Constraint Manager and Circuit Prospector Assistants help improve communication between circuit design and layout.

Webinar 310: Visualization and analysis of analog and mixed signal waveforms with the Cadence Virtuoso Platform

This multimedia presentation covers the ViVA waveform viewer and includes information on the new PSF XL waveform database format, details on how to customize your graphs, make interactive measurements and build expressions in the ViVA Calculator for use in ADE L and ADE XL.

Webinar 311: Specification driven design, analysis and verification with the Cadence Virtuoso Platform

This multimedia presentation provides a "quick-start" demonstration of the ADE XL tools, including how to setup multiple testbenches, define specifications and run sweeps and corners analyses in a single integrated environment.

All these webinars (and more) are available here and are each just under an hour in length.

I'll be back in a week or so with more TYDKAV as we begin to venture into ADE L, ViVA and ADE XL with a few side trips along the way.
