This page shows how Cadence tools are used at SFSU to teach IC design, as well as links to tutorials we have developed that teach IC design and the use of Cadence tools.  We are currently using the Cadence Virtuoso AMS for the analog IC design (engr445) the advanced analog IC design (engr849) and radio-frequency IC design courses (engr890), Cadence Allegro for the PCB design in the Electronics Lab (engr301)
