Used Equipment: 200mm Lives On

The semiconductor industry has always utilized manufacturing assets and technologies longer than originally projected.  Although the most advanced products continue to transition to new technology nodes every two to three years, manufacturing capacity—including the equipment and infrastructure—stays productive for decades.
More than just a means of producing cheap MEMS and sensors, used equipment has been the vehicle to deliver cost effective solutions to expand electronic applications, provide connectivity and enable the control and quantification of everything.

System(s)-on-a-Chip: Changes in SoC Design Methodology II

The System-on-a-Chip (SoC) method of creating silicon solutions is delivering on the original high expectations for the future of the semiconductor industry and ASIC markets.  Designs of very high complexity are regularly accomplished using this approach today, far beyond what was possible only five or six years ago using more traditional ASIC methodologies. A new published report from Semico Research, System(s)-on-a-Chip: Changes in SoC Design Methodology forecasts that the SoC Market Forecast will approach $200 Billion by 2019.

Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: A Market Analysis and Forecast for 2015

The 3rd Party Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) market has seen great innovation in the products it offers to System-on-a-Chip (SoC) designers over the last ten years. If any market segment in the semiconductor industry typifies the intense evolutionary pressures that the entire electronics market has undergone, it is the 3rd Party SIP market. A new report from Semico Research, "Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: Market Analysis and Forecast for 2015," forecasts the worldwide IP Market to approach 8 billion by 2019.
