Procedure for first use of Cadence (with 7WL support)

/!\ NOTE: This is for vlsi lab computers running BULinux 5.0 (Monde)

  1. Create a working directory with the needed startup files. You can copy a default directory from /opt/cadence/cdssetup/7wl

    cp -r /opt/cadence/cdssetup/7wl/. ~/7wl
  2. Check that the files have copied correctly (.cdsenv, .cdsinit, display.drf, and cds.lib)

    cd 7wl
    ls -la
  3. Proceed to Step 1 Below

Running Cadence (with 7WL support)

These steps must be taken every time you wish to run Cadence. For a faster method see Cadence/ShortCuts

    cd 7wl
  2. Source the environment files for cadence and the CDK

    source /opt/cadence/cdssetup/add_ic5141.sh
    source /opt/cadence/cdssetup/add_7wl.sh
  3. Start cadence

    icfb
    • Now you will see the "IBM_PDK" menu is added to the icfb window.
