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.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
