I'd be interested in knowing the estimate of shipment volume of these devices, with sector-wise details - even a top level consumer vs. industrial vs. military, etc would be interesting..

Yes, the power ICs are consumed on every electronic boards. This is obvious that the Power IC markets for which the research predicts strong growth potential for the next four years, are going to grow themselves. Are lighting, PC notebooks, servers and cellular infrastructure among the top five out of the sixteen power IC markets analyzed by IMS Research Ltd.? Do they publish the sector-wise break-up of the growth estimation numbers?

The number of consumer electronics products per person will continue to rise. As new products become available, more people we acquire them. Today, many people have multiple personal devices. Cell phone, MP3 player, GPS and maybe a radar detector. Then at home we have the TV, DVD player, DVR, stereo, surround sound and of course the alarm clock. Now we add the ereader. If you count up the number of power products required for all of these devices and their chargers, it is a big number per person. During the holidays, many of us will be upgrading or replacing devices that have been lost or broken. Yes, I think we will see sales continue to rise.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
