The Cadence University Program was established to provide commercial grade EDA software to accredited, degree granting colleges and universities for non-commercial, not-for-profit educational purposes. Academic research using Cadence software via the University Program must be limited to research in pursuit of a degree (e.g. thesis research). Cadence reserves the right to qualify academic research for applicability under this program.
Standard Policies
