With the IP comapny in their wings Cadence will actually be able to gain something. It may be easier to provide some IP's along with their EDA tools is what I see as a basic gain at this moment.

Same reason Synopsys acquired ChipIdea. EDA without IP is no longer a very growth-oriented business model.

Cadence is EDA and cosmic is in design, not sure if they want to acquire Cosmic. I guess its more to do with financial stability of cosmic.Let us see whats the vision of Cadence CEO on being one of the board of directors.

Interesting. It seems a wild prediction I made last month will soon materialize :) . This seems like a first step by cadence towards the acquisition of cosmic. (see above link "Cosmic to develop IP for Globalfoundries")
