    What does the future hold...

    I just brought a small amount of
    shares...230...and wonder what the future looks like. Any advise,
    tips, etc. I work in the software industry and like the
    technology and analyst upgrades. Does anyone see this stock
    moving anytime soon?

    I am not so worried about
    the short term, looking for a gain in 3 - 6
    months.

    • Intel and IBM have to CDN's tools.. short and long term?

      Thanks,
      Rom

    • i think they will use the placement engine they have been trying to develop for last 8 years

      or use the great technology they got from gambit :-)

    • generation - its this generation. PKS works
      today, so there is are no big secrets being divulged.
      SNPS will have enough problems getting their own
      version to work, but what placement engine will they use?
      AVNTs?

    • Do leading software firms still capitalize
      software costs to protect reported earnings or do they
      simply expense it all?

      I am looking for a study
      on whether software industry's accounting for
      software development is trending toward or against
      capitalization... any books / articles out there?

    • Ponder this possiblility:

      The boy and his
      dog were so bad in previous lives that they have been
      reincarnated as a "dung bag".

      Enough with the idle
      speculation; lets get down to business....

      ==========
      plop plop plop
      ====================================
      ...not to mention the detailed information on internal
      architecture of CDN's next generation software.
      If I was
      your manager, Mr Euthanasia, I'd fire you for that
      message.

      ===============================================================

      The previous remarks conclusively nullifies the
      credibility of the source.

      Information on the current
      production PKS product characterized as "detailed" is on the
      level that has been part of every 1st level marketing
      presentation to customers and press. Dozens and Dozens of
      these presentations have been held in open, public IC
      design seminars across North America, Europe, and Japan
      in the months leading up to production availability
      of PKS early this month. Furthermore, multiple
      articles in standard trade press offer more
      "detail".

      Let Granny relieve the burden of your stupidity, it
      won't hurt a bit ... You must conquer your fear of text
      longer than that of a comic book. Can Granny remind you
      to use lip balm as your lips may get chapped from
      the double duty of moving while reading and breathing
      through your mouth ....

    • This was as much as stated in the EETimes
      article:

      Envisia PKS is claimed to differ from all other
      approaches to deep-submicron design because it includes a
      synthesis kernel that has been modified for concurrent
      optimization between the logical and physical
      domains.

      I'm sure that somebody is going to read that PKS uses
      a single
      kernel/database to do both synthesis
      and initial place/route,
      and has a built in
      timing engine (unlike SNPS PrimeTime), and
      they'll
      be running right out to develop the tool that will

      compete....

      Wish you people would at least think before you
      post....

      If I were your manager, EU, I'd fire you for being
      incapable
      of thinking logically and researching
      properly.

    • First of all, this was not a merger. It was an
      acquisition. Here are the benefits as I understand
      them.

      First, Orcad has 10's of thousands of users. These users
      are potential customers for the rest of the CDN
      product line.

      Second, Orcad has an extremely low
      cost, effective telesales distribution channel. The
      days of the $300K/year, mercedes-driving EDA sales
      person are numbered. Companies need to lower sales costs
      to preserve margins. It's harder than many might
      think to build this type of channel. It was clever of
      CDN to acquire it.

      Third, and finally, the
      real money in PCB design/manufacturing is not in EDA
      software--it's in the parts that go into building the boards.
      Orcad had spent the last 18 months building an
      e-commerce element to their offering and inking deals with
      parts distributors. This system permits users to
      automatically run a BOM on their design, get quotes from
      various distributors, and purchase what's needed.
      CDN/Orcad is positioned to collect a percentage on each
      transaction. All of this is not in place today, but the upside
      is huge.

      All in all, the Orcad acquisition
      looks like one of the best CDN has done.

    • Can CDN convince the Orcad schematic front end
      user to buy their back end Cadence PCB routing tool, I
      guess not, most of the company won't like the ideas of
      in house PCB design, people rather contract the work
      outside the company, then by merging with Orcad, what
      kind of market shares do they gain? CDN get a bad
      reputation with their current schematic entry tool (concept)
      as clumsy, expensive, hard to build library
      component, need 3 times the effort for a design compare to
      Orcad. I hoped CDN won't mess with Orcad products
      offering, God bless Orcad...
