I think that Bruggeman's going to come up with something. He doesn't know exactly what the solution is, but he has a good idea generally where to look. He understands that yet another "me too" product is not going to save EDA.

@cisco11111 Without speaking for John Bruggeman I would give the examples of Spreadtrum which has, with TSMC, developed a 40-nm implementation of the TD-SCDMA baseband processor. A significant part of Spreadtrum's added value is in the communications protocol. The chip is the means by which it is delivered and executed. Similarly Mirics Semiconductor develops software modems for multimedia and TV-on-PC applications. It happens to make chips as one means of delivery. And ditto Icera Inc. which makes software modems for HSPA and LTE and provides the chips on which those soft modems can run efficiently.

Can someone give some examples on this use case? "Many of them are now software companies that use silicon as a means of execution and as means of protecting their software and making sure they get paid for it on a per use basis".
