Emerging Technology Markets Fueling IC Growth
While smartphones growth has declined, total IC demand for smartphones still comprises the largest end market segment for the semiconductor industry. Innovation continues in this market bringing new high performance silicon and package technology opening the door to the next generation of system capabilities. These performance systems enable new features such as AI, VR, and AR among others. But the spotlight is focused on the automotive industry where leading edge technology is being rapidly developed to enhance safety systems, create virtual cockpits, and enable connected vehicles. ADAS will become the next supercomputing application. How will the evolution of 5G enable and drive the semiconductor market — you’ll hear from Jim on these topics, and others.
