Semiconductor IP Market to Exceed $8 Billion by 2020, According to Semico Research

One of the mainstays of the System-on-a-Chip (SoC) market is the continued growth of the 3rd Party Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) market.  The products developed and marketed by the SIP market enable SoC designers to create amazing cutting-edge silicon solutions employed in every niche of today’s semiconductor market.

2016 Wafer Demand Grows While Semiconductor Chip Revenue declines, Says Semico Research

Total wafer demand is expected to return to historical growth rates over the next five years. However, what is uncharacteristic of the past is the wide range of decline and growth that will be logged by specific product categories and technologies.

Do Chip Designers Worry About the Impact of Power Consumption on Sustainability? Sonics and Semico Team Up for Power Management Best Practices Survey

Sonics, Inc. and Semico Research Corporation have launched the “On-Chip Power Management Best Practices” survey. The purpose of this industry survey is to understand how chip designers are managing power consumption and contrast that with expected future best practices. The companies will publish results of the survey on their web sites in the fall of 2016.

Silicon Wafer Demand to Grow 7.4% by 2020, says Semico Research

Silicon wafers are the basic building block for the semiconductors used for the smallest sensor in a light bulb to the most advanced electronic system in the space shuttle.  It all starts from semiconductor grade polysilicon and is processed precisely to fit the needs of each application.  One of the main concerns is whether existing silicon wafer manufacturers can adequately supply 200mm and 300mm wafers to support expected demand from IoT-related devices.  There are only a handful of wafer manufacturers in the industry today.  New research from Semico, 

MEMS Shipments to Reach 54.2 Billion Units by 2020, says Semico Research

The cell phone market made up over half the MEMS unit volume in 2015. The low-end smartphones have fewer MEMS, but this segment is growing faster and cannibalizing feature phones. The low-end smartphones also have a growing number of MEMS in their Bill of Materials (BOMs). Unfortunately, growth in the cell phone market has slowed as the market has matured. What will be the next driver of substantial growth for MEMS?

Analog Market to Grow $8 Billion by 2020, says Semico Research

Analog ICs are critical to nearly all electronic devices.  The global electronics market will consume over 127.5 billion analog ICs in 2016, which translates to several analog ICs per electronic device.  Analog ICs experienced stronger than average growth over the last several years as the mobility products grew at double digit rates.  These products have a higher than average analog content thus growth has exceeded the overall market.

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.

Are You Going to SEMICON West? Semico is Presenting at Two Sessions

Semico Research will be at the 2016 SEMICON West.  Jim Feldhan, President of Semico Research, will speak at SEMICON West on Wednesday, July 13, 2016.
