Value Multicore SoCs in the Smart Home Market will have a CAGR of 80.3% by 2023, says Semico Research

With the AI trend emerging, the semiconductor market has gone from a state of lamenting the lack of innovation and new applications to one of seeing an explosion of new possibilities. The short- and long-term impacts on SoC architectures, the SIP market, software, design starts, EDA tools, market revenues and unit volumes are going to be profound.

Artificial Intelligence: Powering the Next Generation of Growth

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is anticipated to be the next big market driver that will create new or additional semiconductor demand for a wide spectrum of semiconductor devices.  We believe that AI will be integrated in devices from the cloud to factories, homes, offices and vehicles.  The application must accommodate mobile and IoT products.  The second publication in Semico’s series of AI-related reports and presentations, this report addresses two large markets for AI:  the smart home and the automotive markets.  Fifteen smart home end-point devices, as well as 15 automotive systems are
