At the University of Victoria we use Cadence EDA software tools (such as Virtuoso, Assura, Encounter, etc.) to design and simulate analog and digital circuits. To run Cadence software you must have the following:

  1. An Engineering enabled netlink account
  2. A CentOS 7 Linux based workstation or server linked to the Engineering network
  3. Project space to run the simulations and an Engineering home directory for source code (there are important differences between home directory space and project space, which are described here)
  4. A supervisor authorized to use EDA software tools

If you wish to use Cadence please contact the following persons for more information:
