Electronic Products, which is owned by the media group AspenCore, undertook a rigorous vetting process of products launched in 2016. The Electronic Products article featuring the 2016 winners states, “From thousands of products, the editors of Electronic Products have chosen those they feel are among the most outstanding. As always, the selection is based on a significant advance in technology or its application, innovation in design or gain in price/performance.”
The next-generation Virtuoso ADE product suite enables engineers to fully explore, analyze and verify designs, ensuring that design quality is fully optimized within compressed design cycles. The suite offers performance, usability and electrical verification advancements with up to 20X improvement in loading large waveform databases. The interactive, real-time tuning capabilities help engineers hit their specification targets faster and more easily. Enhanced variation analysis tools make light work of detecting and fixing yield problems in advanced-node designs.
“The Virtuoso ADE product suite addresses the challenges that come with the emergence of new industry standards, advanced-node designs and the requirements for system design,” said Wilbur Luo, vice president, product management, Custom IC & PCB Group at Cadence. “Our next-generation suite provides customers with unparalleled performance and ease-of-use features that set the new standard for quality custom design, analysis and verification. The Product of the Year award recognition further demonstrates our ability to deliver innovative solutions that support our System Design Enablement (SDE) strategy, which enables system and semiconductor companies to create complete, differentiated end products more efficiently.”
