Synopsys, Inc. today announced that it has completed its acquisition of certain IP assets from eSilicon.

The start of 2020 is looking very different than the start of 2019. Markets that looked hazy at the start of 2019, such as 5G, are suddenly very much in focus. The glut of memory chips that dragged down the overall chip industry in 2019 has subsided. And a finely tuned supply chain that took decades to develop is splintering.By Ed Sperling
