Energy Harvesting Nodes Expected to Reach 2.96 Billion Annual Shipments by 2023, says Semico Research

The prospect of billions of connected devices using sensors to collect data 24/7-along with the innovations and cost-reduction provided by MEMS devices-has stimulated increased interest in finding a cost-effective, portable energy harvesting solution. The Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to grow at a high rate driven by connectivity across many market segments. In addition to portable applications, many IoT applications will be battery-operated.

Semiconductor Wafer Demand Declined 4.5% in 2019, says Semico Research

Semiconductor sales improved in the second half of 2019 as expected but not enough to counteract the severe drop that occurred in the first half. Although dollar and unit sales declined for the year, both memory and logic showed signs of improvement in the second half.

Semico Wafer Demand: Q4 2019 Highlights

The Wafer Demand Summary and Assumptions is a quarterly publication. It includes an excel spreadsheet with annual wafer demand by product by technology from 2010-2023. Product categories include DRAM, SRAM, NAND, NOR, Other Non-volatile, MPU, MCU, DSP, Computing MOS Logic, Communications MOS Logic, Consumer MOS Logic, Automotive MOS Logic, Other MOS Logic, Programmable Logic, Standard Cell, Gate Array, Analog, Discrete, Optoelectronics, Sensors and Digital Bipolar.

RISC-V to Impact Communications Segment Reaching a 209% CAGR by 2025,says Semico Research

The semiconductor intellectual property (SIP) market has become an integral part of the semiconductor industry. Third party IP has propelled the industry, opening the door for many new products from start-ups to established IDMs. Enabling increasingly complex devices, reducing the cost of product development and reducing the time to market for both leading-edge and mature products are just a few of the benefits of third party IP. Open architecture IP allows users to customize and adapt cores to their own specific applications and provide the opportunity for unique differentiation.

RISC-V Cores' CAGR to Approach 160% by 2025, says Semico Research

For the most part, third party IP uses a business model that employs licensing and royalty fees. This payment arrangement has been successfully adopted by most market players and has matured with the IP market. In general, this IP model has allowed the market to be highly successful even though some IP has been constrained by the rules and regulations of closed architectures. Over the years, some users of IP have become disgruntled with the lack of design flexibility and the high licensing fees and royalties associated with closed architectures.

RISC-V Market Analysis: The New Kid on the Block

In June 2019, Semico Research initiated a study to quantify the total available market (TAM) for IP cores and estimate the served available market (SAM) for RISC-V IP cores.  We surveyed and interviewed a cross section of the semiconductor industry in order to gather information related to the type of devices that are being designed with RISC-V and their target markets.

Semiconductor Content for Energy Harvesting Solutions to Reach $11.1 Billion by 2023, says Semico Research

The term energy harvesting, also known as power scavenging, is used to describe the collection of energy derived from a variety of external sources such as solar power, thermal energy, wind energy, kinetic energy or electromagnetic sources. Energy harvesters accumulate the wasted energy in a system, such as heat given off by motors or the vibrations of motors or other moving objects. The basic technologies for generating energy are mechanical vibration (kinetic energy), thermoelectric, solar (photovoltaic), and RF/Inductive.

Semiconductor IP Market Expected to Approach $9.0B by 2023, says Semico Research

The evolution of the 3rd Party Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) market was driven by the needs of System-on-a-Chip (SoC) designers to find and acquire logic functions as IP blocks to match the functions they needed for their SoC solutions. This resulted in the SIP market taking very specific directions to deliver these needs. There has been consolidation in the market, but new companies continue to emerge, bringing new ideas and products to designers.

Energy Harvesting: Cultivating Fuel for Electronics

Energy harvesting, also known as power scavenging, is used to describe the collection of energy derived from a variety of external sources such as solar power, thermal energy, wind energy, kinetic energy or electromagnetic sources.  Energy harvesters accumulate the wasted energy in a system, such as heat given off by motors or semiconductors, or the vibrations of motors or other moving objects, for use in another system.
