Understanding what are the semiconductor design-wins and the technical choices done by system makers in their products is of high importance to understand supply strategy, the technical and supply chain choices and have real data to feed the device roadmap implementation. Then building bill of materials and do reverse costing at system, module and component levels via reverse engineering is key data for benchmarking products against the competition to predict future adoption of these technologies.
Silicon based devices and related industry is an ever-growing market, with no sign of limitations in term of market growth, new technology development and adoption. Quantum and neuromorphic computing and sensing, AI and advanced material are all emerging taking benefit or adding benefit to the semiconductor industry. Where is heading the semiconductor industry?
Visible light, in addition to X-Ray and InfraRed, from CMOS image sensor to camera module, in 2D or 3D, imaging technology is now an important part of our day-to-day life, invading smartphones, cars, retail… Understand the technology and application to navigate through this world: discover the broad field of Imaging.
Memory is a critical module in modern data centric societies. Either volatile or non-volatile, DRAM, NAND, x-RAM and all emerging memories are highly demanded in mobile and datacenters applications. Navigating efficiently in those high-investment and rapid-evolving markets is mandatory.
Semiconductor industry is electron-centered, but future is photon. From LED to VCSEL, laser, EEL, LiDAR, Photonics ICs or integrated optics, the semiconductor industry is embracing the photon revolution that will reshape the industry.
Power conversion through inverters, power discrete devices or power modules, power management through MOSFET, IGBT, diodes, bipolars, or thyristors are critical elements of our everyday life electrical and electronic systems across all industries. The electrification of transport and the optimization of the electricy consumption and production has changed completely the power electronic landscape and turn it to a strategic field, with impressive technical innovations for EV/HEV and significant adoption of new technologies such as SiC, GaN devices, new architecture of power systems...
Wireless technologies are everywhere, from telecom infrastructure to your cellphone or car. Data and telecommunications through 5G, UWB, WIFI, Bluethooth, mmW, V2X, BTS, small cells, MIMO or NB-IoT… as well as sensing applications with radar are spreading across all the industries. The linked devices filters, LNA, RF-front-end, and all semiconductor components connecting to the RF spectrum is a world in itself.
The semiconductor Front-End manufacturing, driven by the Moore Law and the More Than Moore Law, is progressing toward huge challenges. Advanced node manufacturing, heterogenous integration, chip partitioning, 3D integration, localization of the production… are very important trends that are impacting the semiconductor industry.
The semiconductor Back-End manufacturing has become one of the building block of integration of function of the complete semiconductor industry. Packaging platforms like Fan-Out, SiP, WLCSP, Flipchip, 3D-Stack technologies, hybrid integration, embedded die, chip partitioning… is experiencing rapid-evolving changes through the technology and the supply chain.
Sensing is the first stage of every human being decision process. The same is true for any robotic system and the emergence of big data is only possible because data is available… produced by sensors. The use of semiconductor technologies for sensor and actuator manufacturing enables large volume production and ever decreasing price (with batch manufacturing, large wafer size and high production yield, taking full benefit of the semiconductor added value) and also a very large portfolio of type of sensor, from pressure to image, acceleration to gas detection… as well as AFM, ink jet head and microfluidic.
