With SIP at close to $300M and with a 35% growth rate it's no wonder the EDA leaders are buying up IP companies. At that rate in a few years SIP sales will be larger than CAE. Look for more IP purchases by the big guys while prices are attractive...

The fact that IP revenues increased by 36% is interesting, but the report does not give a breakdown on where the increases came from? Of the 42% increase in APAC, it would be nice to now IP's component increase. Also worthy to note is the PCB and MCM design tools' increase in revenue, 12%. This appears to indicate that the backend and packaging houses are leading the way in innovations like in 3D chip stacking and package-on-package. Dr. MP Divakar

No surprises here. EDA sales are shifting to places where EEs are available the most. APAC will be future hotspot for EEjobs.

It looks like the Asia/Pacific APAC region experienced significant growth in sales, but compared to the other regions detailed it was on par with EMEA block and less than half of the Americas. Is this just them catching up to current demand or a foreshadowing of significant work being performed in the APAC region?

It will be more intersting see how the figures look for the major EDA tool vendors categorized to serve the different areas such as VLSI front end, VLSI back end and PCB sysem design? How does Altium doing compared to Cadence and Mentor in the PCB design?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
