Electronic Design Magazine Awards Cadence Encounter Best Electronic Design Product for 2010

Cadence Silicon Realization Technology, EDI System 9.1, Recognized as Best EDA - Design, Verification and Implementation Product by Electronic Design

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) - Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS), a global leader in electronic design innovation, is pleased to announce that it has won Electronic Design's Best Electronic Design award for 2010 for the Cadence® Encounter® Digital Implementation (EDI) System 9.1 in the EDA - Design, Verification and Implementation Environment category. This product is highlighted in Electronic Design's Dec. 9, 2010 issue.

"I am pleased to recognize Cadence's Encounter Digital Implementation (EDI) System 9.1 as one of the best EDA technology offerings in 2010," said David Maliniak, EDA technology editor, Electronic Design. "The tools represent a realization of Cadence's EDA360 vision and the kind of holistic approach to physical design and verification that is demanded at 28 nanometers and below."

Cadence Encounter EDI System is a complete and integrated digital design, implementation, and verification environment for the development of large-scale, complex SoCs, and delivers pervasive design intent, abstraction, and convergence across the flow for a more deterministic path to silicon success. The new and expanded suite of capabilities in EDI System answers the industry call for improved designer productivity in developing advanced low-power and mixed-signal SoCs at leading-edge process nodes -- such as 32 and 28 nanometers -- with hundreds of millions of gates, including hundreds of IP elements and embedded processors.

"The award is an industry benchmark that showcases the best of the year," said David Desharnais, group director, product management at Cadence. "We're excited to receive this award; it is a testament of our commitment to tackling the challenges of end-to-end chip design and improving the time and economics involved with bringing SoCs to market. Electronic Design is a leading industry publication with a consistent pulse on not only the EDA industry, but the entire electronic design community. To be acknowledged by these industry leaders is strong confirmation that we are delivering on our promise and vision of EDA360."
