Will Ten Silica go Motorola Mobility way after their acquisition by Google. This is because Cadence is only inetersted in acquiring IPs!

Interesting read at mobilitytechzone.com: "Tensilica Incorporation, a market leader in licensing IP core processors, recently announced the strengthening of its strategic relationship with Huawei Technologies, the Chinese multinational networking and telecommunication giant." Market leader no less. This may put CDNS at odds with the gov't in some ways.

I think Cadence favorite song is "Opps I did it again....I overpaid to acquire another mature IP company". But who cares, their stock is up 40% the past 12 months, so from Investor perception point of view, they are doing well. When the times comes to run checks and balances...i.e. Return on Investment in 5 years, is really when the rubber has to hit the road!

I agree. Seems like Tensilica did very well for themselves. During the analyst call, Lip-Bu Tan was asked the question about why the purchase price was so much higher than Tensilica's annual revenue. Tan said "This is premium IP" and went on to say that only a handful of IP vendors can command royalties on their IP. Obviously, Tensilica is one of them.

44m in revenue for a somewhat mature business . And they sold themselves for 380m! I got to say thats a good deal.. for Tensilica.
