When I installed Cadence® OrCAD™ Lite, it also installed OrCAD™ Capture CIS™ Lite product.
I just now opened a sample design file in OrCAD™ Capture CIS™ Lite and it was a sample design by Intel®.
Here is what I know of processor and IC(Integrated Circuit) design.
OrCAD™ Lite is for educational and hobbyist users. You can design a processor on your own but no fabrication plant (or fab) will manufacture just one or two processors because that will be very inconvenient.
Intel® might use OrCAD™ as a side software for training purposes for new staff but they probably use their own processor design software.There are many companies and individual engineers who use OrCAD™ professionally to design electronics / microelectronics systems.
Hundreds of processes is involved when we can have a single processor chip.Silicon is used as the main ingredients and on a single die billions of transistors are interconnected in different layers.Silicon wafer in 200 mm slices are cut into individual processors in Fabs.
Software's like OrCAD™ is used to design the chips and the manufacturing equipment puts the designs in to volume production.
These are the very first days I am using Cadence® products in my life...
