re: Mentor still on track for $1B in sales

@Daniel Payne: Synopsys is indeed #1 in EDA but a new/old player is in the block now -ANSYS! Thru Ansoft & Apache acquisition, ANSYS is the most diversified EDA companies, followed by Mentor as a close second in diversification. I believe the time is right for Synopsys / Mentor (& Cadence?) to match ANSYS in diversification. Mentor has many capabilities that ANSYS does in thermal and fluid flow. It is missing a few solutions to match ANSYS and I believe Mentor is in a good position to make some strategic acquisitions! MP Divakar

Synopsys is still the number one EDA vendor. See www.edac.org for quarterly revenue numbers. Brion was acquired by ASML and is narrowly focused on lithography tools. Visit www.SemiWiki.com for blogs, forums and wiki pages devoted to EDA and Semiconductor design.

I believe that a year ago, Gary Smith had Mentor and Cadence trading off 2nd and 3rd place, depending on whether you count services (advantage Cadence) or not (advantage Mentor). I think that I got the order right ...

Does this mean Cadence is losing market share? How are these companies related in competition?


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.
