Will it be the end of the world or just shrinking EDA? Mystics Muse about Money, Mergers and Multiple SoCs

January 10th, 2012 by Ed Lee

Step aside Nostradamus and Mayans.  The real earth-shattering events of 2012 could take place in the EDA & IP industries.  We asked industry friends, associates, clients and media folks to ponder what industry-shattering events or breakthroughs we might see in EDA & IP this coming year.

So what topics came up?  Consolidation of the industry; standards; various technologies, 3D being the most discussed; even one man’s blatant personal goal.  :-)

We heard the word “challenge” a lot, for the big vendors and the smaller companies.  So will two foundry-led EDA mega-companies duke it out with a third mega-company, as one diviner foretold?   Tough to tell how tongue-in-cheek his prophesy was.

So we’ll post the visionary comments of one individual at a time, in the order they came into us.  We found them enlightening and even entertaining!  We hope you do too.

Liz and Ed
