Reflections on Cadence Acquisition of Denali

Today Cadence announced that they were acquiring Denali to help fulfill their EDA360 vision. Cadence is far behind Synopsys in providing the entire 360 design view. Way back in the early '90s Synopsys made a huge investment in their DesignWare products, which continues to this day (I was the director of corp. comm at Synopsys from '93-'96).

It's good to see Cadence executing on their vision. Maybe we should expect other acquisitions as well? Who's next?
