Both Cadence 2004 and Cadence 2007 are available for use; currently, the default is 2007. We strongly recommend using the latest version since the 2004 version will be going away soon. This version is still available only to allow students and faculty to complete existing, version 2004 projects. All new projects should use the 2007 version.
To run the latest version of Cadence, use the following commands:
module load cadence
