re: Synopsys bullish despite rising chip complexity

I think that the answer is both yes and no. Initially, they are more expensive but provide increased density/speed or lower power. As the technology matures they will trend towards cheaper. I think the greatest challenge to the designers and tool users is and will be addressing the complexity of the design and the verification effort needed. If Synopsys can provide the tools to help with the complexity and verification then they will be successful.
