re: Update: Synopsys to buy Virage Logic for $315M

NO RATINGS
It seems like there is some magic associated with the number $315M when it comes to acquisitions. We are heading to a new era of EDIP or mashup for the EDA+IP industries increasingly tied at the hip. The natural evolution is to also blend with foundry connections. I predict even stronger ties with foundries and EDIP with key alignments/ partnerships. Convergence means reverting to how we all started in this business: The fab also has the IP, libs, tools and services.(not what happened mind you but getting there). This may not be bad because it only means a change of who is the vendor and who is the customer (foundry or end customer).. A healthy industry with large partners is OK too.. I am oversimplifying but not by much.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
