Cadence and ALDEC provide universities and schools with their CAD software at a special price.

OrCAD for Classrooms of Universities

Licenses are provided at a special price (with a big discount, in sets multiple of 5 workstations).
It is possible to obtain licenses for free for 3 years, with an extension, in case of signing an agreement with Cadence on exclusive use (the agreement is signed at the department or faculty level).

Also, students can in this case receive:

Cadence Academic Licenses

The possibility of obtaining Allegro, Sigrity licenses, and, if necessary, a set of Cadence CAD licenses for the development of FPGAs and VLSIs at special prices.
10 workspaces, for 2 years.

Users (teachers and researchers) are supported and trained during the use of licenses.
It is permitted to conduct scientific activities and publish in scientific journals with reference to the use of these licenses.

ALDEC Academic Licenses

Purchasing Active-HDL and Riviera-PRO licenses for university classrooms will allow you to get a complete tool for teaching students the basics of FPGA and integrated circuit modeling, with the ability to check code quality online. At the same time, students can use the free student version of Active-HDL Student Edition to complete their homework.

SMT stencil preparation: tips & tricks, and design software

Why do we talk about printing the solder paste and the importance of SMT (surface mount technology) stencil design? Once the PCB layout is finished, the stencil may be the last way we can enhance PCB assembly quality. But currently, stencil design work is typically knowledge-driven, relying on human processes, and can easily cause issues…

Impedance control issues in PCB manufacturing

Impedance control requirements often accompany the fabrication of complex multilayer printed circuit boards. Understanding the peculiarities of meeting these requirements helps not only to reduce the time for launching boards into production, but also contributes to obtaining a better result. Impedance control at the PCB factory can be roughly divided into several steps: Selection of…

How to make sure that the PCB impedances are correct even after routing changes?

Do you agree that the work of a PCB designer is not always noticeable to others, but very important? The boards you make are built into the latest equipment, often into equipment for responsible use, on which the comfort, health, and sometimes life of people depend. But since these boards are hidden inside the body…
