Interesting. Didnt know synopsys was the 2nd largest IP provider. No wonder cadence is going around shopping IP companies. "They should be more worried about ARC,” he said, referring to the processor core company that is now part of Synopsys. It sold 1 billion processor cores last year," Surprised to see ARC is selling 1B cores per year. Not sure why dont we hear about ARC more often like ARM.

Yeah, I too was surprised to see how big both Synopsys (ARC) and Ceva are in IP.

I wonder how ARM's relationship with Cadence is going to be with this acquisition. There were strained times when Synopsys jumped into competition with ARM IP.

It would interesting to know, how does Cadence plan to license or sell the IP (Tensilica cores, Cosmic Circuits)? SoC design houses will be using these IP's in various applications with a variety of flow & EDA tools. It may be a tough sell to lump the IP with the Cadence tools. On the other hand Cadence services sell was tool agnostic. Comments from EDA & Design community ?
