In May and June this year Cadence issued 9 press releases each month, which felt to me like the right amount of “newsworthy” items.

After withdrawing their hostile bid for Mentor in August it seems like Cadence has returned to press releases with a fury. Here it’s only the 10th of September and Cadence has already issued 9 press releases, that’s almost one a day. At this rate we’re going to see a record of 20+ for the month.

What do you think?

Is this too much news?

I was intrigued by the Software as a Service (SaaS) release because it appears to offer more tools for a short period of time at a lower price than leasing or time-based-licensing. Smaller companies should be attracted to that kind of deal while larger companies tend to protect the location of their IC designs.
