Clive, very good article. Cadence is moving to a new market (IP) by buying market share. The EDA market is somewhat limited, expanding into the IP market is a natural expansion of CDNS offering. Well done!

I see this as non-viable general purpose processor space as being consolidated. Cadence, I suspect might not exactly sell the tensilica IP as configurable DSP anymore.

Whats with cadence acquiring all the IP companies these days? Earlier Cosmic and now this. And what will happen to all tensilica customers using synopsys/mentor flows? There was this ARC CPU which after being acquired by Synopsys, never heard of them again.
