re: Cadence beats estimates, sees growth ahead

@garydpdx- I believe that you are generally correct- Cadence used to count revenue during the quarter when a deal was booked, rather than over the life of a contract. The company has been in the midst of a transition to a "ratable" accounting model, which recognizes revenue over the life of a contract. I may be wrong, but I believe that Cadence is still in the midst of making this transition. Also, I am not sure that the accounting model change is completely responsbile for the fact that Cadence is a smaller company revenue wise than it was a few years ago. I believe the comapny over the years also lost some market share in some areas, though analog I believe is not one of them.

I believe that in the time period that you cite, Cadence was using a different accounting scheme. Cadence changed under their previous CEO (an ex-Intel person who was based in Oregon, or at least kept his home there during his tenure) and is in the process of changing back to a more traditional scheme, if not already.

If I remember correctly CDNS used to do 400m$/Q in 2006-7. What has actually happened? Did the Analog EDA market shrink by 150m?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

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.
