IIRC Apache is not listed yet. If the company is not listed, many a times the management asks to return the stock at a higher price while the employee leaves. If that didn't happen, the ex-employee should get a cut at the acquired value.
Magma stock has gone up quite a bit in recent months. So not a good time to buy. Current market cap is 530M and one would need to shell out atleast 700-800M to buy Magma. I doubt whether SYN or CDNS will want to spend that much right now.
Naw, I don't see Magma going anytime soon, what with chip sales projections showing in excess of 10% for the coming years. Yeah but their strength in the backend process is not working out with such package deals these bug 3 sellout their tools for.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
