Cadence said today it had struck a deal with Lucent in which it would acquire the Bell Labs Design Automation Group (BLDA). It did not say how much it paid for the electronic design automation (EDA) component of Bell Labs. Over 100 of the employees, largely made up of software engineers, consultants and doctorate technologists, will join Cadence. The team has expertise in the computer, comms and consumer electronics markets and will join existing Cadence engineers in a quest for the semiconductor grail of systems on a chip. Current BLDA customers include HP, Matsushita, IBM, National Semiconductor, Ricoh, Silicon Graphics and NTT Research Labs. ®
