Cadence Design Systems, Inc. develops, sells or leases, licenses, and maintains electronic design automation (EDA) software, hardware, verification intellectual property (VIP), and design intellectual property (Design IP) for semiconductor and electronics systems companies worldwide. It offers functional verification products, including logic verification products that enable customers to coordinate verification activities across multiple teams and various specialists for verification planning and closure; system design and verification products for hardware-software verification, as well as for system power exploration, analysis, and optimization; and Design IP products consisting of pre-verified functional blocks to integrate into customer's SoCs to accelerate the development process and to reduce the risk of errors in the design process. The company also provides custom integrated circuits (ICs) design and verification products to create schematic and physical representations of circuits down to the transistor level for analog, mixed-signal, custom digital, memory, and RF designs. In addition, the company provides digital IC design products, such as logic design products for chip planning, design, verification, and test technologies and services; and physical implementation products, which enable customers to create a physical representation of logic models, analyze electrical and physical characteristics of a design, and prepare a design for manufacturing. Further, it offers system interconnect design products to develop printed circuit boards and IC packages; and design for manufacturing products, such as physical verification, manufacturing optimization, and layout analysis products to analyze, optimize, and verify the correctness of construction of physical blueprint of the IC. The company also offers engineering, methodology, education, and hosted design solutions. Cadence Design Systems, Inc. was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in San Jose, California.
