Just a decade ago, the very idea of a company like Cadence Design Systems would have seemed ridiculous. Big electronics companies were beginning to use computers to help design their products, but they considered their electronic design automation (EDA) capabilities a competitive weapon.

And angry shareholders stormed management bastions demanding better performance for their money. Indeed, it seems that there was only one thing that remained virtually constant: Top executives of California companies earned as much as ever last year.
