RISC-V Market: Momentum Building

Semico Research conducted a survey in November 2020 of RISC-V users. This follows an initial survey and report published by Semico in 2019. With this study, we wanted to quantify the total available market (TAM) for IP cores and estimate the served available market (SAM) for RISC-V IP cores. We surveyed and interviewed a cross section of the semiconductor industry in order to gather information related to the type of devices that are being designed with RISC-V and their target markets.

New Directions in the EDA Market: Designing with AI Tools

To combat rising SoC design costs and increasingly complex software applications, a solution has been developed:  the incorporation of AI functionality into existing EDA tools as an aid to silicon and software designers. A new report from Semico Research, Designing New Directions in the EDA Market: Designing with AI Tools (SC109-20) projects that cost savings from using AI EDA tools for SoC designs ranges from 20% to 30%.

Analog Market Update: Making Digital Systems Come Alive (2020)

Analog ICs are critical to nearly all electronic devices. The global electronics market is expected to consume over 160 billion Analog ICs in 2020. This translates to several Analog ICs per electronic device but is down 1.5% compared to 2019 unit sales. While Analog ICs are essential to electronic systems, this will mark the second year in which revenues and units both register declines. That has not happened before during the past 20 years. The Analog average selling price has been dropping for five years and is expected to fall to only $0.318 in 2020.

Smart Speakers: A Booming Market

Our interaction with electronic devices has changed much over the decades. A big step up was the transition from command-line to graphical user interface, along with keyboards and mice. The next big jump was the touchscreen, which had been around for decades before being popularized on a global scale by Apple’s iPhone in 2007. We now have arrived at a new user interface: voice supported by natural language processing.
