This page provides information only about the Cadence software used at York University.

Remember: Cadence is the name of a company - students do not “learn Cadence”, they learn about Cadence products.

Cadence Tools in Our Research

A wide variety electronics research at York employs the Cadence products in the design of its electronic technology. Areas of research at York where the wide variety of Cadence tools (Custom IC, Digital IC, Verification) are used include:

• Hardware accelerated machine learning
• Wearable computing
• Radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs)
• High-speed wireline systems
• Low-power microprocessors
• Bio-sensors and biologically inspired sensors
• Microfluidics
• CMOS image sensors
