It's official! The U.S. economy has been in a recession for the past year.

And, the global credit crunch and economic recession has pulled the semiconductor industry down to the point of entering its eleventh recession.


"I'm sorry it's happening," said US President George W. Bush, referring to the global financial crisis. In fact we are all sorry but we can’t be moping around, can we? As the ex-Intel chief executive, Craig Barrett, argued "Regardless of what happens, the only way to get out of a recession is with new products. Collectively, we need to invest and bring new technology into the market."


Indeed, companies 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 can read more about Encounter Digital Implementation System at http://www.cadence.com/cadence/newsroom/press_releases/pages/pr.aspx?xml=120308_edi 


Encounter Digital Implementation System can help you tackle the worst of your challenges on leading-edge 45- and 32-nanometer designs – with 100 million or more instances, 1,000-plus macros, operating speeds exceeding 1GHz, ultra-low power budgets, and large amounts of mixed-signal content.  It has been developed working in close collaboration with over 20 customer partners who have extensively used, validated and now, deployed it. You can read more about customer comments and feedback at http://www.cadence.com/cadence/newsroom/features/pages/feature.aspx?xml=edi


I invite you to experience and explore all aspects of the new Encounter Digital Implementation System, and in the process become a specialist in the latest requirements and techniques to address complex flat and hierarchical design closure, advanced signoff, low power, mixed-signal, and advanced node design. Of course, to keep it exciting, we’ve got great prizes you can win along the way. Find out more at http://www.cadence.com/products/di/encounter/pages/default.aspx


Remember, a recession can actually provide you an opportunity to break away from the pack.  So, how can you overcome the paralysis in a recessionary environment? How can you create success while others sit on the sidelines, waiting it out?


Innovate your way out of the recession …with the new Encounter Digital Implementation System!
