Cadence is the real winner...

Microwind is more of educational purposes...

hi jitesh,

cadance is the best one for layout. In ADS , layout can not be simulated

In my opinion, cadence virtuoso is for chip layout; while ADS is for PCB.

Hi Guys,

What about LAKER?

I suppose it is better than Virtuoso
laker is also good and the license is less expensive but virtuoso is still better.

For layout purposes Cadence Virtuoso no doubt...ADS is more suitable for higher-level e.g. simulating whole transmit chain etc.

Only i used the ADS ,
ADS is best if some one know it,LVS , DRC ,nodealCHECK, conCHECK,L to S and S to L is available what else you guy's need . Export ability.
Layout is just matter of DRC thats it .
Desige Kit install ability.

No doubt ADS also has capability equals to Cadence Virtuoso .

I think cadence virtuoso is the best option for layout and circuit design , the stability of laker is not good, and it is not the full integrate tools for the full process of design.
