Good Vs. Bad Acquisitions

October 7th, 2020 - By Ed Sperling

M&A begins to ramp up, but not all of them will work.

Making acquisitions is one thing, but it’s the result afterwards is that that really matters,” said K. Charles Janac, chairman and CEO of Arteris IP. “If your company culture is very different from any other company culture, that makes it much more difficult. We’ve seen that with some acquisitions that have not been very profitable, and the company may end up divesting.”

Arteris IP’s pending acquisition of Magillem Design Services is aimed at expanding its footprint beyond the network on chip into what Janac calls SoC assembly. Magillem can package IP in an SoC into an IP-XACT format, which paves the way for uniform communication in an SoC or an advanced package.

Semiconductor Engineering: Deals That Change The Chip Industry

K. Charles Janac, President and CEO at Arteris IP opines about acquisitions in this new article in Semiconductor Engineering:

Deals That Change The Chip Industry

Nvidia-Arm is just the beginning; more acquisitions are on the horizon.

So far in the IP space, the most significant acquisitions have been Synopsys assembling an almost $1 billion operation that basically focuses on peripheral I/O IP and PHYs,” said K. Charles Janac, chairman and CEO of Arteris IP. “Nvidia’s acquisition of Arm is extremely significant both for the IP industry and the semiconductor industry. Nvidia is trying to become the next generation of computing platforms, which is targeted directly at Intel and AMD. So with Nvidia behind it, maybe the Arm architecture becomes the next brain of the SoC.”
