Welcome to the home page of the Cadence Users
Group at University of Idaho. Students obtain practical
experience in advanced electronics design using state-of-the-art
CAD tools, computing and laboratory facilities.
Cadence® EDA tools are used by students taking several ECE
courses and by research projects listed below. We utilize the
Custom IC and Verification tools provided by
We have following Cadence tutorials sites for
ECE students and for general public.
- ECE310 and
ECE311 student resources
- ECE41x and
ECE51x student resources
Classes currently using Cadence Tools
/ ECE311 Microelectronics
I/Lab - This course introduce the student to basic physical
electronics, electronic devices, and device characteristics. The
devices include diodes, metal oxide semiconductor field-effect
transistors (MOSFET), bipolar junction transistors (BJT), and
operational amplifiers (Op-Amp). To provide the fundamentals and
basic skills required to analyze (DC, AC and small-signal
analysis) and design circuits containing diodes, MOSFETs, BJTs,
Microelectronics II - An advanced electronics course that
includes core topics; MOSFET Operation, Single-Stage,
Differential, and Multistage Integrated Circuit (IC) Amplifiers,
Biasing IC Amplifiers, Frequency Response, Feedback, Power
Amplifiers, and Analog Filters. Each topic will introduce a new
knowledge set and a new set of principles and show how these
apply to electronic circuits.
515 Analog IC Design - A course about analyze and design of
the analog integrated circuits, fundamental issues of CMOS
analog microelectronic circuit design, basic CMOS circuit
building blocks, as well as complex CMOS circuits such as
operational amplifier, comparator, and voltage references.
