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.

Semico Fab Database 2019 Summary Now Available

Semico's Fab Database report is a great resource for tracking changes among advanced as well as mature fabs.  You can also sort the data by region or by type of products.  Semico's report includes updates on fabs owned by foundries, memory manufacturers, IDMs, and research facilities.  The database itself includes detailed information about each fab, including operating status, location, process, products, wafer size, capacity, and more.  Semico updates it biannually with a summary of which chan

Market Improvements in 2H 2019 Soften Wafer Demand Decline, says Semico Research

Unit sales are the primary driver for wafer demand. With inventories for many products back in balance, most markets are returning to a 'normal' seasonal pattern. Last quarter, it looked like optoelectronics and sensors were the only categories expected to register positive unit growth in 2019. Now DRAM, NOR, MOS Logic Computing, Automotive, Multi-purpose Logic and a few others will actually register unit growth in 2019.

Semico Wafer Demand: Q3 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.

New Application Design Starts Will Drive 40% of Unit Volumes by 2023, says Semico Research

Many of the traditional end-use applications are experiencing slower design start growth rates due to maturing markets and high design costs. The unit volumes associated with all applications remain healthy, exhibiting an 8.5% CAGR through 2023. However, removing the unit shipments attached to the new, emerging applications drops the CAGR to only 4.3% through 2023.
