How many laid off from the FUll-custom division (Virtuoso/OA/Allegro)
Hi There As an existing customer, I'm interested in knowing how much engineering staff was laid off from the full-custom division (responsible for tools such as Virtuoso). Any specific information would be welcome.
They only got rid of the dead wood and non-critical personnel. The core engineering team is still in place and there has been significant effort of late to enhance and stabalize IC61. Additionally R&D restructured so there is one physical implementation group. Top two execs have changed too which is for the better and Miller and Raman are gone! So not to worry CIC Virtuoso product line will be OK and only get better!
Really? Please explain. I hear the Virtuoso team is broken into three independent groups each with their own VP that must fight for resources with each other and Encounter. How is that going to help make Virtuoso better for analog people? Isn't the team now reporting into people that only have digital place and route experience? That instills confidence in me as a customer - NOT.
I wonder who will win any budget agrument - the three little Virtuoso teams or big bad Encounter?
