Synopsys: Is 40 the new 20?

Thursday, January 19th, 2017


Synopsys is undergoing a massive reset.
Where not so long ago, it self-identified as the largest EDA company in the world, other words are now used to describe the enterprise: “Synopsys is at the forefront of Smart, Secure Everything with the world’s most advanced tools for silicon chip design, verification, IP integration, and application security testing.”

CDNS: What a difference a year [or 2] makes

We’re coming up on almost four years, full on, since the momentous events of 15 October 2008 when the entire top executive team at Cadence exited stage left.
