@Brian Bailey: I think Cadence acquired Sigrity for a fraction of what it was worth. If you look at similar acquisitions (like Ansys buying Ansoft, although the latter had deeper product portfolio than Sigrity), it was $800+M, not a paltry $80M that Sigrity got!. More over, Cadence will be duplicating many capabilities it already had before the acquisition of Sigrity. MP Divakar

@jlf, it is the other way around, Ansys can buy Cadence! Look at the market cap of Ansys against Cadence! Nonetheless, I would argue that Ansys has much better end-to-end solution when it comes to packaging simulations. Cadence is missing the entire mechanical simulation tools where Ansys is king!

Be thankful Cadence didn't buy Ansys or we'd really be screwed!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
