We expected to see significant growth during 2011. It appears we were a year off. After we published IC CAD 2011 we were informed that we had significantly underreported Atoptech. They had actually grown an amazing 187% in 2010. That big of a miss, in an area as important as ASIC Layout, needs to be corrected. So here is the corrected C-1 pie chart for 2010.
