The Cadance need license, which is expensive.
I think it is hard to get free one

Rcih ppl: Cadence (front to back)
Not that rich: Synopsis+Hspice ( it doesn't mean they're not same good as Cadence. The money talks )
Poor: Pspice (that's the old name)
Others: they used their own customized CAD.

Hi Marie,

It is tough to get in any of these software until u have access through educational institutes or huge co-orporations.

If you are seeking to learn this on your own, well u can get there manuals but not the software
