@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.
@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!
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.
