Re: cadence tools intro

Hi kinysh:

The IC toolset is for custom IC design;

The SOC is a toolset for cell-based design from RTL2GDSII.

The LDV means Logic Design Verification, is the digital simulate

enviroment for verilog/vhdl/systemC. Now LDV is changed to IUS, means

Incisive Unified Simulation.

Re: cadence tools intro

ic design = virtuoso
SOC = frist encounter
LDV = NCverilog

I think now the SOC of Cadence is for SOC encounter. It's very expensive.

LDV 5.1 has includes other tools, such as ict

1. ic is a layout editor & verification tool. for digital/analog design.
2. soc is ic placement & route tool, just like se. for digital design.
3. ldv is logic design verification tool. for digital simulation.

cds include ICC LDV and DSM families.
the ICC is a schematic, layout editor.
LDV id the verification tool.
DSM is the P&R and auto-layout tool.

What's new in LDV 5.1?
And what is ict ?

A tool for code coverage: Incisive Coverage Technology.

It is very powerful for checking code coverage, including block, path, variable, expression, state, arc, and so on.

Certainly, Cadence buys it from a company.

IC != ICC

LDV 5.1 support verilog-2001 future. but only ncverilog support it . verilog -xl don't support it.

I think NC has good speed in pre- or post-simulation, but during RTL simulaiton, VCS and ModelSim are faster.

And the most error report should be done by lint tools in verification.

My opinion.

If you hope to know the detail information about the tools and the difference about different tool from different EDA vendors.
