SPICE circuit simulation is only one of 12 product overlap areas between Synopsys and Magma, http://www.semiwiki.com/forum/f2/synopsys-acquires-magma-1152.html. We all want to know which EDA tools from the combined companies will live, die or be migrated.

It is hard to believe that something as old as Spice is causing such a dramatic change in EDA marketplace! I did my PhD on MOSFET modeling for Spice over 20 years ago and fair amount of Spice circuit simulation over the years that followed. Never thought there was any innovation left in this space. Boy, was I wrong! Kris

"This is probably not viewed by EDA's customers as a good thing, but for EDA it will help both top line and margin growth." yup by killing competition they can extract more money out of many of the already "about-to-be-bankrupt" chip companies!
