Most of these evolutionary forces are driven by the need to integrate more functionality in fewer devices at the system level and in ever-smaller footprints. The primary method to accomplish this today is through the use of 3rd Party SIP. The SIP market has evolved to supply the solutions SoC designers require to craft their very innovative silicon products in response to ever-changing market requirements and to allow new capabilities and functionality to be incorporated in cutting-edge silicon solutions.
As the semiconductor industry enters the latter half of the second decade of the 21st century, substantial changes to the System-on-a-Chip (SoC) design methodology are taking shape. These changes will create a new standard for how these very complex silicon solutions are conceptualized, designed and implemented for at least the rest of this decade and possibly longer.
In the latest report published by Semico Research Corp., Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues For 3rd Party SIP: A Market Analysis and Forecast for 2016, SC105-16, divides the market into categories by function. The report is 106 pages in length with 124 tables and 241 figures.
