IP Subsystems: The Race is On

In the first half of 2012, two leading EDA/IP companies, Cadence and Synopsys, announced the availability of Subsystem IP. What is it? Why now? Is there a demand for this kind of 3rd Party IP?

MEMS Displays: Projecting a Direct View of the Market

The market for optical based MEMS is poised for exponential growth. In addition to MEMS devices for projection, MEMS for direct view displays have emerged. The total market was under $1 billion in 2011, but by 2016 it will reach $10.4 billion. MEOMS (Micro Electro-Optical Mechanical System) is a specific form of MEMS in which light is manipulated. There are essentially two classes of MEOMS. One is for projecting images and another is for direct view displays. The projector type of MEOMS use some form of micromirror technology that oscillate to direct a light beam.

ASIC Design Starts: New Growth Ahead

The ASIC Design Start landscape has changed since 2006 to accommodate increasing design costs, rising design complexity and lengthening design cycle times, especially in the System-on-a-Chip (SoC) market. These changes are having an impact on the ASIC Design Start market as the broader semiconductor market has mostly recovered from the financial meltdown that occurred in the 3rd quarter of 2008 and into the first part of 2009.

ASIC Design Starts By Key End Market Application

The ASIC design start landscape has seen dramatic changes as end market demand rose and fell due to the financial meltdown in 2008, recovery in 2009 and 2010 and more uncertainty due to natural disasters and financial market fluctuations in 2011. Rising consumer spending for mobile and portable electronic devices helped mitigate some of the impact of these fluctuations on the ASIC design start landscape.

The Time Has Come For MEMS Oscillators

The MEMS oscillator market is still at a nascent stage. It represents less than one percent of the total timing market of $6,3 billion. Nevertheless, the potential growth of MEMS oscillators continues to attract more vendors. There are currently nine vendors shipping MEMS oscillators. Two more have announced they will start shipping later in 2012. More are expected to jump into this market. The MEMS oscillator has to compete with the long established quartz crystal oscillators. MEMS oscillators offer several advantages over quartz devices.
