MEMS Oscillators: The Momentum is Building

In 2012 the MEMS (Micro Electrical Mechanical System) oscillator market grew 31% to $37.9 million. This represents less than one percent of the total timing market of $6.9 billion and promises to be a high growth market as MEMS oscillators continues to attract more vendors. There are currently eleven vendors shipping MEMS oscillators. One more, Sand9 has announced it will start shipping later in 2013. One new entrant, Silicon Labs has launched a single chip CMOS MEMS oscillator. Two companies, NXP and Murata, each have MEMS oscillator products on hold.

450mm Wafer Manufacturing: The Semiconductor Industry at a Crossroads

The debate over 450mm wafer manufacturing has been raging for years within the semiconductor industry. Should it happen? Will it happen? When? Who will be the first to take the plunge? Development costs and fab costs are so high that only a select few companies are even capable of making it a reality. What does that mean for the rest of the industry?

Aging in Place: The Internet of Things for the Golden Years ABRIDGED

We are a society that is growing older by the minute. By 2030, there will be over 72 million people over the age 65 in North America alone. And one thing is certain: none of the elderly want to end up in a nursing home. In fact, elderly who can avoid lengthy nursing home stays, on average, have a median household wealth that is 1,130% greater than those who have stayed in a nursing home over 180 days.

SoC Silicon and Software Design Cost Analysis: Costs for Higher Complexity Continue to Rise

Today, everywhere we turn we hear speakers give presentations at conferences and industry events despairing how the rise in silicon design costs is hampering the semiconductor industries growth path. As part of this problem, we now recognize that software design costs have eclipsed silicon design efforts and have become the largest portion of the SoC creation effort. In addition, IP integration costs are now rising as more discrete IP blocks are infused into SoC designs today.

MEMS and Controllers: Dynamics of Competition

MEMS and microcontrollers work closely together in many applications. In the simplest case, a sensor provides an input to an MCU. The sensor will detect an activity or condition in the environment and convert this to a signal that the MCU uses for its algorithm. In some cases the MCU may drive a MEMS such as an actuator.

Mobile Healthcare: New Technology for a Healthy Lifestyle

The healthcare market is a large and complex machine that needs regulatory input from governments, expert input from healthcare providers, cost input from health insurers, and end-result data from consumers. Each of these segments over the next few years will be pushing and pulling new technologies to completely overhaul the worldwide view on healthcare. Semico's new report on mobile healthcare examines these issues, including Big Data and the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and much more.
