Interesting situation here. Virage Logic has a very good IP portfolio including the IP acquired from NXP. Since Synopsys is acquiring Virage , all this IP will ultimately go to them. And this puts synopsys in direct competition with a lot of its big customers. I guess Synopsys now is becoming more of an IP company than a EDA company
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.
