and bring new technology into the market."
must design to innovate their way out of recession. And to help you do just
that, we are launching the innovative Encounter Digital Implementation
System - a next generation high-performance, high-capacity RTL-GDSII design
closure solution for advanced node, ultra large-scale, ultra performance/power
design flows. Encounter Digital Implementation System offers the
Industry’s first end-to-end parallel-processing solution that enables all
steps of the design flow to be multi-CPU enabled - from floorplanning,
placement, routing, extraction to timing and signal integrity signoff,
resulting in the fastest (high velocity) path to best quality of silicon. You
