One overriding message of the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is that consumers expect smartphones to be fast, powerful, versatile and small -- and have a battery that lasts all day. These features, along with device heat-dissipation requirements, are major drivers in the semiconductor industry. Smartphone users' appetite for data over their devices also means that huge amounts of data must be stored remotely in ...

From what we see now, what is planned and in the pipeline, the scaling roadmap has at least another decade to go. But of course, the more we enter the nanoscale domain, the more complex scaling becomes. More materials, more process steps, more equipment, more challenging concepts and device architectures. So we see all our partners reporting steeply rising development costs for new technology nodes. So how will we cope as ...

The growing demand for efficient energy production and management means power semiconductors will become even more important in 2013. As the volatility in fossil fuel prices increases, so does the focus on green sources of energy like solar panels and wind turbines. The demand for efficiency management in motor drivers, lighting and power supplies is rising, which in turn drives the use of power semiconductor devices. The use of power semiconductor ...

Advanced packaging technologies will play an increasingly important role in improving the performance of integrated circuits. This is particularly true of circuits intended for mobile applications where space is limited by the handheld nature of the device, and digital, analog and radio frequency components must be tightly integrated. As new packaging technologies are more widely adopted, the ability to quickly modify ...

The computational memory strategic inflection point continues in 2013. The Ultrabook, with its abandonment of the workhorse single die packaged DRAM, will begin to ramp into significant volumes. It is now clear: solderdown memory is here to stay in the thin client platforms such as the Ultrabook and tablets. New multi-die DRAM packaging technology such as Invensas' DIMM-in-a-PACKAGE™ modules, will gain traction ...
