Simple Tutorials from other VLSI Cadence/University Programs

University of Washington have developed a set of tutorials that step a novice user through the process of creating and verifying a layout. The tutorials take the user through the following steps:

Worchester Polytecnical The aim of the laboratory is to provide a comprehensive design environment for the development of novel integrated circuit and VLSI architectures, and to facilitate hands-on education of undergraduate and graduate students in all aspects of IC design.

Virgina Tech following tutorials show setup files, basic features and simple examples of Cadence tools for VLSI design.
