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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
