Research on Cadence Design Systems Inc. and Mentor Graphics Corp.

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jul 15, 2011 -- offers investors comprehensive research on the Technical & System Software industry and has completed analytical research on Cadence Design Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) and Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ: MENT). 

Technical and system software companies generally perform as well as demand for the products they design. Semiconductor chip demand is strong at the moment, but overall demand for electronics is weak.

Steady demand for semiconductor chips has helped the technical and system software companies that design the chips and manufacturing equipment. The current demand levels have also led to faster technology turnover. Companies within the industry are responding differently to this trend. 

Some companies are leaning on acquisitions to keep up with the latest technology. Chip manufacturing equipment maker, Cadence Design Systems Inc. recently acquired Azuro Inc., a company that makes software to design energy efficient semiconductor chips. The move complements Cadence's earlier acquisition of Altos, another chip designer. Investors can register for free to access the research report on Cadence Design Systems Inc. at

Weak demand for electronics appears to stem from an overall decline in consumer spending. Mobile devices are one area that has bucked that trend, but electronics in general have tapered off in the last few months. Companies like Mentor Graphics Corp., a supplier of design automation systems for electronic hardware, has seen shares slide since March after a getting off to a strong start in 2011.
