For Analog: not much, only Hspice for simulation
For Digital: depends on you design methodology i can say everything. like a kid to pick some candy in a candy store.

I know the address of them, but the site of Syn@psys is very compilcated.
Can I say that the goal of Syn@psys tools is degital Design?

Every kind of design have its own methodological. No common flow for any design.

The point is you have understand what are you doing for before ask anything.

I have experience with Saber.
Is fine, lot of libraries. Easy to use.

But seems to be a dying software.
It changed hands from Anology to Ba??? to Synopsis.
Not much info about Saber at Synopsis site.

If you could get a _demo_ version, it is worth it.

Saber is a great tools for mixed signal design. However, it is too expensive for most of the company. Therefore, it is not widely used in the market.

Actually, I happy with it have winnt version.

Not the goal, but Synopsys' product can not compete with Cadence and Mentors Graphics in Schematic capture , Layout and PCB design. I don't know any product of Synopsys have RF capability.
