Cadence Design Systems, Inc. develops, sells or leases, licenses, and maintains electronic design automation software, hardware, verification intellectual property (IP), and design IP for semiconductor and electronic system customers worldwide. Its products and services are used to design and develop integrated circuits (ICs), and electronics devices. The company’s digital IC design products provide chip planning, design, verification, and test technologies and services, as well as enable customers to create a physical representation of logic models, analyze electrical and physical characteristics of a design, and prepare a design for manufacturing. Its functional verification and design IP products enable customers to employ enterprise-level verification process automation; and hardware-software verification automation and effective system design, as well as system power exploration, analysis, and optimization. The company’s custom IC design products create schematic representations of circuits down to the transistor level for analog, mixed-signal, custom digital, memory, and radio frequency designs. Its design for manufacturing products include physical verification, manufacturing optimization, and layout analysis products used to analyze, optimize, and verify that the physical blueprint of the IC has been constructed correctly. The company’s system interconnect design products enable consistent co-design of interconnects across ICs, IC packages, and PCBs, as well as focus on entry-level PCB solutions. It also offers engineering and education services related to IC design and methodology. Cadence Design Systems, Inc. was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in San Jose, California.
