  • Things You Didn't Know About The Rhinovirus and ViVA (Part 3)

    Okay, so I really have no idea how to tie those 2 things together, but I ran across this little widget the other day and just had to share it (slide the slider until it's about 2/3 of the way across). I know we've all seen electron microscope images of those transistors we're fiddling with...

  • How to Handle a floating output?

    Hi, what is a common practice in IC design, when, for example, a Q output od a D flip-flop is not used. Is it left floating, pulled up/down with a resistor or any other load? Kind Regards, pitter.

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: ViVA

    Sorry I've been missing from this space for so long. I've been busily working on a number of projects to try to help get the word out about all the features I have been (and will be) blogging about. I've also been becoming an expert on making video demos, some of which I'll try to feature...

  • Let’s Bring Analog Into Low-Power Design Discussion

    The discussion about low-power IC design has been focused on digital implementation from RTL on down. We are beginning to move above RTL with tools and methodologies that consider power at a systems level. But what’s not so often discussed is the use of low-power design in mixed digital and analog...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso ADE

    After delving into lots of new features in the Virtuoso Schematic Editor, the Library Manager and the Help System , I'd like to turn to our old friend ADE (aka Analog Design Environment , or for those of us who've been around awhile, Analog Artist). ADE is another one of those tools that you're...

  • Things You Didn't Know About Virtuoso: RTFM

    Wait, don't run away! In this case I really mean " Read The Fantastic Manual ". A recent comment by a reader prompted a spirited internal discussion here at Cadence regarding our Help system. I suddenly realized it had been ages since I even looked at it. Seriously, when was the last time...

  • We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming...

    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...
