Cadsoft & Eagle now in the hands of Autodesk
Two weeks ago we wrote about the acquisition of Premier Farnell by the Swiss holding Dätwyler. Now it turns out that the latter only bought a part of the former. Indeed, last week Premier Farnell announced that it completed the sale of Cadsoft, the makers of the popular Eagle PCB and schematic capture software, to a subsidiary of Autodesk. Farnell will continue to distribute Eagle, but now on behalf of Autodesk.
