08 October 2014

Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry revenue totaled $1.76 billion in the second quarter, up 6.3 percent compared with the second quarter of 2013, according to the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDAC) trade group.

EDA revenue in the second quarter increased 0.7 percent compared to the first quarter, according to EDAC.

"Double-digit increases in printed circuit board and multi-chip module (PCB/MCM) and semiconductor IP led the way to an overall increase in industry revenue for Q2," said Walden C. Rhines, board sponsor for the EDAC market statistics service and chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics.

PCB & MCM revenue increased 20.3 percent in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the same quarter in 2013 as sales grew to $178.4 million.

Semiconductor intellectual property revenue increased 23.2 percent to $532 million, while computer aided design revenue, the largest EDA category, declined 1.9 percent to $599.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013.

IC physical design and verification sales decreased 4.8 percent to $357.9 million, while service revenue increased 4.3 percent to $89.9 million in the second quarter, according to the report.

Geographically revenue increased in every region in the second quarter, the EDA consortium said. In the Americas, EDA's largest region, EDA revenue increased 11.2 percent to $794.4 million. Sales in Europe the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) were up 3.5 percent as revenue totaled $290.4 million in the second quarter.

EDA revenue in Japan decreased 16.6 percent to $189.2 million, while EDA sales in Asia/Pacific (APAC) increased 12.1 percent to $484 million, according to the consortium.
