Re: How FPGA work??
In simple words,
FPGA get manafactured like an ASIC. They use transmission gates for route switching and use D flip flops for implemnting logic (which otherwise called as LUTS). Essentially when programming you are configuring the D flops and routing matrix. Outputs of D...
vim verilog +configuration

Re: Please introduce some good materials for Cadence back-en
As such I haven't come across any books which explicitly describe the cadence tools. One has to learn them through either Cadence training or peers. But looking at cadence docs could be a good start!!!
Best of luck
Use perl script for lot of options like running interactively, running regression/mini regression over a night and you could make the script to send an email to you after completing etc.
Use c shell scripts for a just the job to get done
