@Patrick: interesting perspectives on EDA in the Clouds. I would say the beginning step would be to replace the customer premises installment of licenses to a hosed environment in the private cloud of the EDA tools provider. The pricing model for that will have to be obviously more competitive than the one customer's install. This model alleviates the security concerns and privacy of customer designs. What your article didn't address is obviously the dreaded the pay per use or the SaaS model of EDA. I don't see that happening any time soon but if the world economy stagnates, there will be pressure to make EDA affordable to small startups. Dr. MP Divakar
