@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

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?
