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.
