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
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
