The likely integration of these functions (like the recent ST announcement of Gyro + Accel) and later into MCUs will drag prices and unit volume down as well as make it more difficult to identify seperate functions. $2.6B seems a stretch unless you estimate the contribution of these functions on the high side...

The dollar figure and the addressable market growth will most likely make a case for some new players. What is needed in the next couple of years are innovations in applications using the sensors at hardware 'system' level as well as software application innovations. Form factor challenges will invariably drive innovations where the sensing functionality has to cohabit logic and memory functions, typically in a 3D stacked configurations. I contend the market is ready for innovations based on this. MP Divakar

This is an area which provides some really nifty features for mobile devices. I doubt if most of us had any idea how quickly they would be adpoted by the average consumer, especially since they were initially viewed as neat ideas for gaming but most (including lots of engineers) didn't seem to see much use beyond that.

An interesting differentiator will be cost of test, due to the necessity of movement during test. Most test floors are not set up for orientation control...

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.
