Cadence Academic Network Activities

The academic network was launched in 2007 by Cadence® Europe. The aim was to promote the proliferation of leading-edge technologies and methodologies at universities renowned for their engineering and design excellence. A knowledge network among selected European universities, research institutes, industry advisors and Cadence was established to facilitate the sharing of technology expertise in the areas of verification, design and implementation of microelectronic systems. The Central Institute of Engineering, Electronics and Analytics ZEA-2: Electronic Systems is a member since 2013.

We use Cadence software for research:

Our main research topics are design and verification of System-on-aChip (SoC) solutions for the various research applications of the Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH. For all these topics we rely on various tools from the Cadence product portfolio, mainly including the Virtuoso® Custom Design Platform, Spectre®, Genus™ Synthesis Solution, Innovus™ Implementation System, the silicon signoff tools Tempus™ and Voltus™, and Xcelium™ Logic Simulation.
