layout soft

cadence is better, others are no good for seamless design. as youknow, circuit design, layoutdesign and spice/rf-simulation are continuous ,each study will affect to next stage, some case result will be feedbacked previous design. so seamless design. i preffer cadence(better no best)

For complex ASICs, I agree, it has to be Cadence. But for simpler microwave circuits, ADS works fine.

Agilent ADS is really good for RF Layout... But I have never used it in chip level. It is better for RF circuit design, layout and rf matching. It also has tool kits for RF System design.

Cadence Virtuoso is one of the most popular tools for RFIC design (Cadence has many other EDA tools, so calling the tool kit just Cadence is ambiguous).
