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")

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.

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

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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
