Here is my advice to all. Accept the truth that 3 big Eda tool companies is unnecessary. There is a duopoly now, Synopsys-Cadence. Similar to duopoly in FPGA. Flush all traces of Mentor tools out of your company asap. It is actually good for the EDA industry because they have never received their fare share of the industry revenue. Prices will and should go up. No chip could be taped out without them yet they get a paltry portion of the semiconductor industry pie. Siemens, sell calibre to cadence immediately. While it is still worth something.
