EDAC’s January 7th MSS release details EDA/SIP earnings in Q3_2012, and attributes $423 million to SIP companies out of a total $1,620 billion for the combined industries. The same document cites EDA/SIP earnings in Q3_2011, and attributes $410 million to SIP companies out of a total $1,544 billion for the combined EDA/IP industries that EDAC represents.
In other words, and ironically, more than 25% of the revenues reported by the EDA Consortium’s Market Statistics Service are attributed to SIP companies, organizations who work in silicon intellectual property. And why is this ironic? Because if you thoroughly search both the DATE 2013 and DAC 2013 websites, you will find far less than 25% of the content there is dedicated to the topics of SIP, its development or utilization.
