Create Libraries

When starting a design in Cadence, the first thing to do is to create a library where you can store your designs. Every Library is associated with a technology file and it is the technology file that supplies all the color maps, layer maps, design rules, extraction parameters required to view, design, simulate and fabricate your design.

Let's go through the steps of creating a library, one by one.
