Seems to be really easy to analyze it and I will try to do it somehow. http://www.bridewedding-speech.com/

Remember that with each acquisition the smaller EDA company typically has up to 50% of their employees "let go". Then the real work of creating a credible product roadmap begins in earnest, and we still haven't seen a roadmap of the Magma/Synopsys product overlaps. Here's a list of 11 products that overlap, http://www.semiwiki.com/forum/f2/synopsys-acquires-magma-1152.html

The EDA market is getting tougher and tougher and consolidation is a consequence of this.

Synplicity, Magma, Ciranova, SpringSoft...... Seems to me that growth by acquisition is the only strategy at Synopsys these days. Should somebody remind them what is organic growth? BTW whos next? Atrenta?

This is very good move by Synopsys. I think this acquisition by Synoposys will further intensify the battle between Synopsys and Cadence.

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.
