This paper describes a set of software tools well suitable for teaching graduated and undergraduated students the design of VLSI submicron integrated circuits. The CAD system Introduction to Microelectronics includes basic tools such as mask-level editor, on-line Design Rule Checker, electrical parameter extractor and fast analog simulator. The software includes also a tutorial on MOS and bipolar devices with comparison between simulations and measurements and a CMOS process simulator.
