Are you working in the area of mixed signal?

Then you may want to exchange information and experiences with other engineers.

At the Cadence Community, a new Mixed-Signal Design Forum has been launched, providing a place to discuss topics that cross between analog and digital domains.

It doesn't matter if you're just starting with mixed-signal design, or you have a lot of experience. This is a customer-driven forum that allows you to get in touch with other engineers, ask questions, and discuss a wide variety of mixed signal topics. You can use your Sourcelink account to set up a forum subscription.

Are you interested in learning more about mixed-signal implementation?

In this case the Mixed Signal Analog on Top training might be appropriate for you. It's a three day training that instructs you in mixed-signal Implementation design techniques using the Cadence Encounter and Virtuoso platforms.

  • Day 1 - Introduction to Encounter for analog engineers, to get an understanding of how the digital implementation works.
  • Day 2 - Mixed-signal introduction with respect to Analog on Top (AoT) OpenAccess database preparation. Understanding the Incremental Technology Database (ITDB) and Virtuoso mixed-signal floorplanning. Design interoperability using OpenAccess and digital implementation with Encounter.
  • Day 3 -- Data exchange from Encounter back to Virtuoso. Using power aware CPF techniques in Virtuoso chip assembly and top level routing. Full timing model and analog top level static timing analysis (STA).

The training is based on the latest IC615 and EDI11 tool releases.

Kind regards
