Fast and easy design entry

Virtuoso Schematic Editor provides sophisticated capabilities

that speed design entry of even the largest and most complex custom designs

Cadence® Virtuoso® Schematic Editor provides numerous capabilities to facilitate fast and easy design entry, including design assistants that speed common tasks by as much as 5x. Well-defined component libraries allow faster design at both the gate and transistor levels. Sophisticated wire routing capabilities further assist in connecting devices. For larger and more complex designs, Virtuoso Schematic Editor not only supports multi-sheet designs but also provides the ability to design hierarchically, with no limit on the number of levels used. The Hierarchy Editor makes hierarchical designs easy to traverse, and automatically ensures all connections are maintained accurately throughout the design.

  • Speeds common design entry tasks by 5x (GXL)
  • Enables adding design constraints to the schematic to maintain consistency and preserve the designer’s intent on critical pieces of the design
  • Eases the development of multiple tests over multiple conditions to validate a design’s performance against the target specification
  • Allows advanced user to quickly execute commands using user-programmable bind keys and object-sensitive pop-up menus, which display relevant operations
