The Cadence® brand identity is an important asset of Cadence Design Systems, Inc. Everyone—including Cadence employees, contractors, suppliers, distributors, consultants, developers, and even those with no relationship with Cadence—is responsible for the correct usage of Cadence trademarks. The following rules will help you to use the Cadence trademarks correctly and consistently. Please read the following in its entirety and be sure to adhere to the outlined rules.

RULE #1:

When writing about Cadence products, always refer to the most up-to-date Cadence trademark list below and use the appropriate legal symbol. You only need to use the "®" or "" symbols at the first mention in the body copy (and never in headlines, titles, subheads, diagrams, or tops of slides).  Unbound documents such as web pages must have at least one appropriate mark on every page. In PowerPoint presentations, use trademarking in the first mention of a trademarked product where it appears in the body copy of a given deck.

RULE #2:

Cadence trademarks must always be used as adjectives followed by a generic noun. 

These are CORRECT uses of trademarks:
The key to having silicon that meets all specifications is the Virtuoso® custom design platform. Thanks to the Incisive® Formal Verifier, you can... Nothing beats the power of the Cadence Innovus Implementation System. 

These are INCORRECT uses of trademarks:
The key to having silicon that meets all specifications is Virtuoso®. Thanks to Incisive®, you can... Nothing beats the power of Innovus.

RULE #3:

Do not use acronyms in place of a trademarked name.

Examples:
Cadence® Incisive® Enterprise Simulator, not IES; Virtuoso® Schematic Editor, not VSE; Allegro® Package Designer, not APD

RULE #4:

Legal mouse type is required on all Cadence communications. It helps us protect our valuable trademarks, and it helps us to acknowledge the marks of others.
