As costs of developing process technology grow, fewer companies will move to advanced nodes, he predicted. Brilliant analysis

@Rick, any particular reason why there is growth in Foundry market (+44%) compared to -0.5% growth in IC market ? Does it mean profit of foundry market is independent of IC market profit ?

His follow on slide (page 2 of the story) showed a shift of more wafers coming from foundries and fewer from captive fabs.

@Rick, so can we assume foundries like TSMC,GF etc will continue to grow in-spite of slowdown in economy because more and more companies are going fabless ?

It might have something to do with TI http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4186551/Texas-Instruments-exits-process-development-race-item-1 and AMD going fabless

TI isn't going fabless. They are focusing on analog and running only digital in foundries. They continue to invest in analog fabs.

The flat IC market (cited -0.5% growth) can still mean wide variations among IC players. Those engaged in advance nodes will receive most of the profits.

I understand average forecast for IC revenue (from about 12 other market research firms) in 2013 is about 6% (YoY). 2012 was about -3% average.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
