We recently announced the 9.1 version of the Encounter Digital Implementation System. Head over to http://downloads.cadence.com, select your platform and choose EDI91. Notice that in our download system, we’re calling it EDI as opposed to the former SOC to align with a name change from SoC-Encounter to EDI System that occurred in the 8.1 release.I think customers will be interested in three high-level aspects of 9.1 that lead to one important benefit: getting your job done faster within the tool. The first area of focus was on raw turnaround time for a typical job that runs through the system. Across a suite of designs that our developers use to test the tool, we’re seeing on average a 2x run-time improvement as compared to 8.1.RTM for multi-corner designs.The second area of focus is improved quality of results, both in terms of setup time optimization with SI and hold fixing. For example, our hold fixing algorithm is now better able to identify bottlenecks and efficiently repair hold violations without increasing area- especially locally.The third area is in terms of correlation to signoff. The parasitic extraction engine used during post-route optimization aligns more precisely with signoff extraction engines without the need for scale factors. This leads to fewer iterations required to meet timing closure according to signoff timing.I think these items together, along with other enhancements make 9.1 a release you’ll want to check out. Further Reading:
Most excellent points. At advanced nodes, implementation and signoff should not be two separate parts of the flow but one leading into the other seamlessly. EDI system goes a step beyond with the ability to complete signoff analysis from within the platform thereby reducing iterative loops to near zero.
