I did small research in the area of available EDA tools for analog/mixed-signal IC design that is presented below. There are three big players, which tools are industry standards, that are (alphabetical order): Cadence, Mentor and Synopsys. After them is Silvaco and then there is a rest of less known tools. Full list of found EDA tools for IC design is presented below.
