ESD Alliance, Semico Research Sign Joint Marketing Agreement

Agreement Offers Access to Semico Reports, Conference for ESD Alliance Members

The Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance (formerly the EDA Consortium) and Semico Research today announced that they have entered into a joint marketing agreement (JMA) to work together on several business initiatives in support of the semiconductor design ecosystem.

Energy Harvesting: The Next Billion Dollar Market for Semiconductors

Whether it’s the Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, or industrial automation, new devices and applications are portable, battery-operated and require continuous power.  Wireless connectivity is required for connecting to the Internet.  Today’s devices collect and transmit data from sensors, are always or almost always on and require power.  The semiconductor industry has met the challenge to design devices for low power operation.  But eventually batteries still run out of energy and have to be replaced or recharged.

Semico Partner EDAC is now the ESD Alliance

The EDA Consortium (EDAC) has launched a new name and mission; the organization will now be called the Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance.  The group will now address the larger design ecosystem, including semiconductor intellectual property (IP), embedded software, advanced packaging for system scaling and service companies that provide design resources.  The ESD Alliance hosts DAC, the Design Automation Conference, each year.  For more information, download this presentation or visit the ESD Alliance at www.esd-alliance.org.

Mixed Signal and IoT Driving ASIC Design Starts Growth, says Semico Research

Steady demand in existing end markets and growth from new end applications are pushing ASIC design activity to new levels.  This increase in growth is based on very good growth in the Mixed Signal ASIC market and in the Basic SoC market. The Basic SoC market is being driven by the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the need for silicon solutions for this segment. Mixed Signal ASIC designs have been growing for the last few years as more systems seek to interface to analog 'real world' functions.
