Cadence University Program Member Page

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.

The 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 Cadence®.

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

ECE310 / 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, and Op-amps.

ECE410 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.

ECE415 / 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.
