SAN JOSE, Calif., 16 March 2013. Cadence Design Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:CDNS), an electronic design innovation company, has entered into an agreement to acquire Tensilica Inc., a provider of dataplane processing IP for approximately $380 million in cash.

Tensilica will expand Cadence's IP portfolio with configurable dataplane processing units optimized for embedded data and signal processing.
