The Next Evolutionary Step for the SoC Market is ...

Come Learn About IP Subsystems with Semico Research at DAC

The next evolutionary step for the SoC Market is ... IP Subsystems.  This concept involves a "divide and conquer" design strategy that enables designers to increase integration and meet rising customer expectations of performance and functionality.  Semico Research has a new report, "The IP Subsystem Market:  An Evolving Landscape", which examines this market in detail.  Different SoC types are aimed at different applications, and the report details the average number of discrete IP blocks per Basic, Value Multicore, and Advanced Performance Multicore SoC.  The fastest growing segment is Advanced Performance Multicore with a CAGR of 15% from 2015 to 2020.  

Are you going to DAC next week?  Semico will be there and will be speaking about this topic on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Solving the Design Cost Puzzle:  How IP Fits
10:30am, June 7, 2016
DAC Pavilion, Austin Convention Center, Austin, Texas
Jim Feldhan, President of Semico Research, will speak on June 7, 2016.  Jim's presentation is titled "Solving the Design Cost Puzzle:  How IP Fits".  The ESD Alliance and Semico will address trends and issues driving the rapidly growing market for 3rd party semiconductor Intellectual Property. Key information provides attendees an understanding of the underlying market forces that are driving the expanding use of 3rd party semiconductor IP and the outlook and challenges ahead. Issues at the forefront of the design community include how the rise in IP block content per SoC and rising gate counts contribute to growing SIP market revenues. Other areas to explore include the impact of rising design costs on design starts, units and IP licensing revenues as well as the impact of new process technologies.
