Clive, very good article. Cadence is moving to a new market (IP) by buying market share. The EDA market is somewhat limited, expanding into the IP market is a natural expansion of CDNS offering. Well done!

I see this as non-viable general purpose processor space as being consolidated. Cadence, I suspect might not exactly sell the tensilica IP as configurable DSP anymore.
