San Jose, CA--September 16, 1996--The Electronic Design Automation Companies Assoc. (EDAC; San Jose, CA) announced the availability of its first quarter 1996 Market Statistics Service (MSS) report. As of this year, EDAC's MSS report tracks three additional categories. Service revenue is broken out into maintenance revenue, consulting revenue, and other service revenue. The CAE application segment 'analysis tools' features a sub-segment on timing analysis, and physical libraries and module generators were added to the IC layout application segment.
The MSS report is segmented as follows: The two measured units, software licenses and sales revenues are sorted by operating system (Unix vs. PC), revenue type (new license revenue and service revenue), and application (CAE, PCB/MCM Layout, IC Layout). EDAC's MSS report features numbers in the following sub-applications: CAE--high-level entry, gate-level entry, VHDL-based simulators, Verilog-based simulators, gate-level and proprietary HDL simulators, circuit (analog) simulators and mixed-signal simulators, analysis tools (timing analysis, other analysis tools), test automation, ASIC synthesis, FPGA/PLD synthesis, application-specific hardware, PCB/MCM Layout, IC Layout--automatic placement and routing, floorplanning, layout verification, full custom tools and module development tools, physical libraries, and module generators.
MSS data for 1996 includes consulting, physical libraries, and a separate category for timing analysis. In the first quarter of 1996, consulting revenue represents over 20 percent of the total EDA service revenue.
For the IC layout category, automatic placement and routing, a comparison of the first quarter of 1995 to the first quarter of 1996 shows that the new license revenue grew by 120 percent, and the license units by over 62 percent.
The MSS report is available now at a yearly subscriptions rate of $3,500. It is published quarterly, and subscribers can request 1994 data, 1995 data, and the quarterly 1996 data that will be published throughout this year.
To ensure the confidentiality of each company's data and therefore obtain highest accuracy, the independent accounting firm Arthur Andersen collects and compiles this sensitive information. MSS data is collected from at least five companies for each reporting category. These companies must represent at least 80 percent of the EDA revenue for the reporting category. There are over 30 vendors now participating in the program, including Accel Technologies, Avant!, Cadence Design Systems, Compass Design Automation, Epic Design, High Level Design Systems, Mentor Graphics, OrCAD, Synopsys, Viewlogic Systems, Xilinx, Zuken-Redac, and many others.
