The Revolution is Coming Sooner Than You Think

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Last week I predicted a Revolution in EDA. I said that “the sooner the EDA companies learn to swim with the tide, the better off they will be after the revolution”. 

Well, today Cadence just jumped into the water and started swimming. Like Michael Phelps!!! You can read the traditional Cadence marketing speak on this new offering here.

In a nutshell, Cadence has made public what it has been offering select customers for some time … hardware, software, design flow, and applications support as a Software-as-a-Service model.  Pay per use … pay as you go.

If you are a small startup that can’t afford the upfront costs for software and hardware and the part-time IT guy…

If you are a small-medium sized design services firm that wants to do turnkey design but can’t afford to keep idle software lying around in between client projects…

If you want to do place and route from your iPhone

This may be for you.

More next week….
