SIP Market Mysteries Explored and Myths Exploded

Phoenix, Arizona March 15, 2011 - 2010 was a very good year for the 3rd Party SIP market which rebounded from its first ever revenue decline in 2009. Even though the market showed good growth in 2010, it essentially moved sideways with a 21.5% growth compared to a 21.6% decline in 2009. However, looking at only SIP market annual revenues obscures several very interesting trends in the SIP market and in the broader System-on-a-Chip (SoC) market.

What's the Fastest Growing Semiconductor MOS Logic Market? (Hint: It's Not Microprocessors)

Phoenix, Arizona February 22, 2011 - It should come as no surprise that semiconductor foundry manufacturers are booming. The semiconductor industry has been transformed. But it's not just fabless versus IDM (Integrated Device Manufacturer). Revenue has shifted from Embedded MPUs, MCUs, DSPs and Standard Cell ASICs to Special Purpose Logic chips. Integration has taken over MOS Logic sales, creating a huge increase in the sales of fully integrated semiconductors. Most of these chips are being manufactured by foundries.
