At this point, you might as well count Apple out. They are no longer relevant or provide any competition or innovation. http://bit.ly/IC4m9t

I am a bit confused by this. The order in this thread seems to be different from the original article. Is TI number 3? If not, are the the $ numbers correct in the original article? Thanks.

Yes, the entry barrier is very low in the ARM-based chip ecosystem. All the technology pieces (CPU, GPU, DSP etc.) are available on license and the smartphone chip market is over-crowded. However, capabilities such as software expertise, integration, strong OEM relationships, financial strength/ resources and product roadmap will set the best companies apart. It's a growing market and I expect very interesting market dynamics ahead. Regards, Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, Strategy Analytics.

Thanks, Looks like this is a billion unit market. are there entry barriers ? Do you see the Goliath to take over anytime soon?

@sranje: Thanks. Yes, we do track units, revenues and ASPs on a quarterly basis for 13 smartphone chip companies across stand-alone and integrated processor categories. The rankings are slightly different (but not much) in terms of unit shipments. Regards, Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, Strategy Analytics.

Samsung is in a strong position vis-a-vis the mobile App processors since they got into Apple and because of their surge in smart phone shipments. Qualcomm relies on other OEMs sales, it will be interesting how it would turn out if Apple change their App processor vendor.

Dear Sravan, Excellent data and additional comments - thank you. Wouldn't data in units instead of revenues also be (more?) useful for market shares - ASPs in different segments of smartphones are quite different

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
