Welcome to the home page of the Cadence Users Group at Oklahoma Christian University.

This page contains information about the Cadence design tools extensively used in classes in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Oklahoma Christian.


CENG 3013/4013: IC Design and Advanced HDL - Both courses involve designing integrated circuits in Verilog.  In Integrated Circuit Design (CENG 3013), aka IC’s I, a small ASIC microprocessor is designed and implemented on a CPLD/FPGA device.  In Advanced HDL Design (aka IC’s II), designs of more advanced digital processors, with modern features and higher integration, are explored.  Cadence tools are among a number of choices for students to design and simulate these digital circuits.

ELEC 3303 and ELEC 3313: The use of schematic capture and simulation with PSpice is a standard and essential tool for the completion of objectives in the electronics curriculum. Use of these Cadence products have included routine use for homework and lab assignments that require the simulation and analysis of electronic circuits. In addition, Cadence is used in the analysis and design of larger electronic systems. In Intro to Electronics, the students typically analyze and improve the design of H-bridge used for directional movement of mobile robots. In Electronics I, the students typically design a discrete component operational amplifier, and analyze and design an AM Radio.

ELEC3403: Continuous Time Linear Systems. - Op-Amp circuits are simulated and results are compared to laboratory experiments.

ELEC 4732/4743/4753: Systems Design II/III - Cadence/PSpice is used in student Senior Design projects to simulate circuits and document final circuit designs.

ENGR 2544/3313: Introduction to Digital Systems and Electrical Circuit Analysis - Since PSPice is a standard tool used throughout the EE and CE curricula, the students are given an extensive introduction to the tool in Electric Circuit Analysis.  Once they have learned basic usage of the tool, the students use PSpice to design and analyze simple active circuits that are then built in the lab to compare measured results with simulations.  The final lab project is design of an integrator to specifications given by the instructor, then simulated and measured for both square wave and sinusoidal inputs.
