Cadence To Buy Tensilica

By Ed Sperling – Cadence has agreed to buy Tensilica for roughly $350 million in cash—$380 million minus $30 million that Tensilica had on its books at the end of last year—setting the battle over IP into high gear among EDA vendors.

It’s clear that what started as a gingerly toe-dipping in the IP market has transformed rapidly into a feeding frenzy. more>
