@rick.merritt, cadence will definitely feel the pressure. Currently the SE-Encounter offered by cadence is competing Magma. But after this merger Magma will definitely become vendors first choice because of inhouse STA checking capability.

@DataMuncher Just curious to know if Ansys is used in semiconductor industry ? I read somewhere that Ansys is used to simulate the IC stress/strin profile. Have you personally used this tool ?

I hope this deal will make the life of engineer's easy. Earlier engineers used Magma for P&R and then port that data into Synopsys to check for timing issues. I hope this merger will create a single tools which will do both palcement and timing check.

Unfortunately such M&A's is likely to kill sound technologies inherent in aquired products with or without intention due to internal re-orgs etc in due course. SNPS might claim that we aquire talent and develop further to solve customer issues, but what customers really loose is differentating technologies or aquired company platforms on which they would have invested considering the scale or sizes of these companies. Prey at the end are customers and employees. Sound example for the reason of occupy wall street :^) !

People talk about the big 3 EDA companies, but seem to forget about Ansys. Also very big and buying up companies like Apache.

Whoops, you're correct. For some reason I thought it was a half billion settlement.

Amusing. Would your viewpoint change if it was based on facts? Dylan was kind enough to link to the details of the settlement in his article.

Wasn't that settlement amount only $12.5 million? http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4187513/Magma-to-pay-Synopsys-12-5-million-to-settle-suit

If you recall, a Cadence-Mentor merger was in the works a few years ago but fell through. Many felt it was a bad idea from the start because of so much product overlap. I don't think that is likely to happen. This is a different deal because Magma really is a lot smaller than Synopsys, Mentor or Cadence. Obviously there is product overlap with Synopsys and Magma, but not to the same degree.

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
