Cadence had not figured in the top ten at all in Gartner’s 2012 ranking for semiconductor IP.

The Semiconductor design IP market grew by 11.5 percent in 2013 to a value of $2.45 billion, according to Gartner. Processor licensor ARM Holdings plc had a 43.2 percent share of design IP revenue. Synopsys was second with 13.9 percent and Imagination Technologies third with 9.0 percent.

ARM continues to be the clear market leader in semiconductor IP core licensing but its year-on-year growth was eclipsed in 2013 by Imagination Technologies Group plc. Imagination’s growth was partly due to its acquisition of MIPS Technology Inc. early in the year.

Other notable movers included Sonics Inc., which expanded IP core revenue by 44.8 percent and graphics core licensor Vivante Ltd. which broke into the top ten ranking. Sonics climbed to 7th in 2013’s ranking from 9th in 2012’s ranking. Ceva and Rambus suffered falls in IP core revenue. Ceva fell from 5th to 6th while Rambus maintained eighth position in the Gartner ranking.
