I just know that during the time-frame of this guy, Cadence Orcad and the layout was a mess and was unusable in my opinion. I'm not sure of the organization, but the products seem to be very heterogeneous and not playing well. Almost a kludge. I abandoned using them about 2 years ago, so things may have improved.

@Ron Wilson: your latter point about extracting value from a wider segment of the design chain is exactly what Ansys has been using as a game plan though it came from the other end of the spectrum (its tools were mostly used in backend & packaging before the acquisition of Ansoft). It is time the big EDA started to diversify and play in other segments of the value chain. MP Divakar

Why the guy is leaving is a surprise. Cadence just had a good quarter and hope they are not falling back to old state

It almost seems as if there is an internal struggle between the Cadence that wants to keep building increasingly complex tools for a shrinking and unrewarding market and the Cadence that wants to extract value from a wider segment of the design chain. Is the outcome as simple as saying that if the first group beats the second, the shareholders lose?

What was behind their thinking? They just never thought it was a good fit?

This is a surprise indeed... I thought Bruggeman was a good fit in the role he was serving... also their internal announcement that "product marketing would move into the corresponding R&D organizations within Cadence..." may turn out to be beneficial in the long run. Is this just a precursor to more coming from Cadence? MP Divakar

EDA industry observers that I have talked to are not the least bit surprised. Comments range from "Was wondering how long that would last" to "slightly sooner than expected".
