Electronic Design Automation Provider Synopsys Says it Will Partner with Innovative Architects in India to Further Software Business


Synopsys India will partner with small-sized semiconductor design companies in the country to further its reach in the electronic design automation industry, it has said. Synopsys India is a part of Synopsys Inc., a conglomerated with extensive operations in the electronic design automation sector. The conglomerate has a valuation of US$2 billion and is listed on Nasdaq. 

In an interview to a leading business daily in India this week, the co-CEO and president of Synopsys said that the company would join hands with a different league of companies as it observes growth in the software business. He seemed optimistic as he remarked that the company’s US$100 million software business carries the capability to report 20%-30% growth in the current financial year. 

But even as it forms partnerships with smaller firms, the company is in no way sidetracking its plans to join hands with semiconductor and tech giants such as Intel, Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, and Freescale for both software capabilities and EDA, which is primarily used for designing electric circuit boards and USB ports. 

The company’s rationale behind teaming up with smaller firms is simple: A number of enterprising individuals are now breaking away from their roles with multinationals to set up their own ventures. Synopsys hopes to capitalize on their know-how of this ecosystem to further its business offerings. The company terms its core strengths as expertise in chip design and building software that backs the operations of these chips. 

As it hopes to make more profits from its software business, the company has already started expanding its portfolio by acquiring companies abroad. One of the more recent acquisitions was that of a company that specializes in verifying the integrity of software and another that operates in the security domain. In India, Synopsys will be looking to partner with innovative architects.

Samsung and LG Engage in Marketing Battle to Save Sagging Premium TV Sales


The premium television segment is set to become a battleground with Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics ready to engage in a war to promote their OLED and SUHD television models. Currently, the global television market’s future looks uncertain, but the same cannot be said for the high-end television market in countries such as China and India, where consumers are still investing in televisions linked to DTH services. 

Recent reports in the media say that the TV units of both LG and Samsung have seen losses in the first quarter – this has prompted the companies to lay an added emphasis on revitalizing their television units. This has set the stage for a face-off between the two companies as they try to bring more consumers on board. A glut of low-priced, multi-functional television products has been seen in emerging countries such as Russia, Brazil, China and India. Here, domestic companies have thus far enjoyed predominance. But now, with these companies finding it growingly difficult to stay competitive, growth avenues are aplenty for the high-end television market, with products that are sophisticated. 

Both LG and Samsung have realized that promoting their high-end television models will likely help salvage their drowning TV businesses. Samsung, for one, is using culture marketing to gain a wider share of the market, whereas LG hopes to harness the developments that have taken place in OLED TVs. It is important to note here that LG released the first OLED television in the world recently. Samsung, on the other hand, brought the SUHD TV to the market in February 2015. With both companies boasting their own set of strengths, using these to market their products seems like the only way ahead.

Samsung has partnered with U.S.-based Universal Pictures to promote its products to time with the movie Jurassic World, whereas LG had signed a partnership with Google to obtain big data and use it to develop targeted advertisements for its OLED TV model. 

It now remains to be seen how these results impact the profitability of the television units of the two electronics giants over the next few months.

India to Relax Listing Rules to Stop Tech Startups from Moving Overseas


India’s startup ecosystem is just beginning to burgeon, but the country’s complex listing rules are not making it any easier for new enterprises to raise funds from the public. This has proven detrimental to the startup ecosystem in the country, with a number of startups moving overseas to countries such as Singapore and the U.S., where the conditions are more conducive for a newfangled firm to do business. Startups Flipkart and InMobi are examples of firms that have changed their domicile from India to Singapore.

In an attempt to stem this exodus of startups, the Indian stock market regulator, SEBI, has decided to launch a new trading platform that will make it easier for companies to list themselves as well as raise funds. With this move, it is evident that India is now waking up to the fact that startups can prove lucrative to its economy. Although this realization comes late, market watchers are optimistic about it bearing fruit. The changes implemented as part of this move will likely come into force by the end of 2015. 

Currently, India has a strong emerging startup culture, with thousands of startups doing business here. In fact, the country has been described as among the best destinations for new entrepreneurs to do business. Spotting this opportunity, a number of global investors such as Accel, SoftBank, and Tiger Global have channeled funds into promising startups. Domains that have seen the most investor interest are digital payments, e-commerce, cab summoning services, and mobility/data analytics.

With the new rules expected to come into force soon, startups can expect better norms for listing, clear IPO pricing rules, and lock-in conditions. As part of the move, SEBI will form a new institutional trading platform, which will be linked with the two stock exchanges that are currently operational in the country.

Marine engineering companies are committed to developing efficient propulsion technologies. Several technology developers have collaborated with vessel operators to develop propulsion systems which offer increased power density coupled with fuel efficiency. Several major port authorities and maritime organizations have declared emission standards for vessels operating in designated areas. Shipping operators are obligated to comply with emission regulations while operating in those areas. Marine hybrid propulsion system is a cost-efficient option to meet the NOx Emission Control Area (NECA) and Sulfur Emission Control Area (SECA) requirements. The new International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations on ship emissions are imposed starting in 2015 in Emission Control Areas (ECAs). As marine regulations are being primarily imposed in the coastal regions of Europe and North America, the majority of the development in the hybrid propulsion market is being witnessed only in these regions.

The demand for marine hybrid propulsion systems to be expected globally within the forecast period has been taken as a function of regional government funding, adoption of technology, preference of vessel operators, and enforcement of emission norms. The weightage of these factors was analyzed at regional and at country levels in order to arrive at the possible installations that can be expected in the marine hybrid propulsion market during the forecast period. Regionally, Europe and North America are likely to dominate the market for marine hybrid propulsion systems within the forecast period. However, Asia Pacific is projected to emerge as one of the most lucrative markets in terms of investment growth. Countries such as China and Singapore are expected to lead development activities in this region. Europe has enforced strict sulfur control norms through the declaration of ECAs in the North Sea and Baltic Sea regions. Thus, northern and northwestern Europe host the most hybrid vessels, and the majority of the development is witnessed in inland vessels and small ships operating at ports within ECAs. Hybrid vessels and ships are primarily deployed around major trading hubs and the inland waterways of northern and northwestern Europe due to the enforcement of strict sulfur regulations beginning in 2015. The market for hybrid propulsion technology is also growing extensively in the U.S. and several vessel and towage operators are inclined towards the utilization of this clean propulsion technology.
