A focus on customer enablement across all Cadence sub-organizations has led to a cross-functional effort to identify opportunities to bring our customers to proficiency with our products and flows.
Hence, Rapid Adoption Kits -- RAKs -- for Synthesis, Test and Verification Flow were born!
What is a RAK? It's a new type of content that is a package of different knowledge pieces (presentations and application notes along with a demo design database with relevant scripts and instructions) to demonstrate how you can improve your productivity and maximize the benefits of Cadence tools and technologies.
Cadence Synthesis, Test, and Verification engineers have been developing these RAKs for RTL Compiler, Encounter Test, Conformal, Encounter Digital Implementation System and Incisive products.
In last one year, 16 RAKs have been developed so far, and we welcome and are working on more ideas.
Sound interesting? Want to know more about these RAKs? Read on...
What's in it for me?
Talk: RAKs provide an overview and/or tutorial including detailed information on a focused topic or a flow.
Walk: Each RAK comes with a labs and instruction database, so you can learn-by-doing.
Drive Comfortably: All documents are downloadable so you can go through them at your own pace.
I am interested in an LEC technical step-by-step guide. Can your RAKs help?
Of course, jumping to the "Conformal LEC: LEC Jumpstart Kit" can help you.
Similarly, the "Encounter Test and RTL Compiler: Integrating DFT during Synthesis" RAK can help you walk through several of the DFT capabilities available for insertion via RC, including testability analysis, compression analysis and insertion, and MBIST insertion.
OK, I am an expert Encounter Test ATPG user, and want to learn more about precision diagnostic flow.
We've got you covered! There's a RAK for that too!
You can also get RAKs for getting yourself introduced to
Below is a complete list of the current RAKs that are available to Cadence customers. The RAKs are kept up-to-date with the current release of the software and based on customer feedback. You can view Presentations, Application Notes or download the entire kit.
