The IP Subsystems Market to Reach a 17.6% CAGR through 2020, says Semico Research

As the semiconductor industry approaches the end of the second decade of the 21st century, substantial changes to the System-on-a-Chip (SoC) design methodology are taking shape. Instead of dealing with SoC design at the lowest common denominator – the discrete SIP block, SoC designers now look to move up a layer of abstraction to design with system level functionality to reduce the effort and cost associated with complex SoC designs today.

Rely on Semico's Fab Database to Keep You In the Know

Interest in China is at a fever pitch, with the country's National IC Industry Investment Fund leading the way.  The latest to announce a project in China is GLOBALFOUNDRIES, with plans for a 300mm fab in a joint venture with the government of Chongqing.  As the project involves upgrading an existing fab, production is planned for 2017.  Lots of projects are going on in China right now -- are you keeping up?

MEMS Market Update: IoT as a Driving Force

The market for Micro Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS) has been growing at a fast rate.  In 2015 sales of MEMS devices exceeded $14.2 billion, an annual growth of 11.6%. Semico Research projects that by 2020 MEMS sales will reach $28.7 billion.  This is a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.1% from 2015 to 2020.  Gyroscopes and accelerometers will account for a significant amount of the MEMS revenues. But growth will be driven by a wide variety of emerging MEMS.
