I just blogged about this:

Silicon Valley and EDA specifically have been living off the innovation of our fore fathers with the trend getting stronger every year. Venture Capitals, the founding partners of Silicon Valley, are no longer willing to risk life nor limb for our Valley. They continue to say that EDA start-ups are cost prohibitive due to point tool integration challenges, cut throat competition, and limited exit strategies. Semiconductor start-ups offer similar challenges as well with an estimated cost of $100M and 6+ years to get a major semiconductor start-up to break even. EDA and semiconductor acquisitions are a fraction of what they were two years ago, in both value and number of transactions.
