Can Market Maturation and Economies of Scale co-exist?

NO RATINGS
The chip industry is arguably one of the technology field where we usually see a quick progression to level of maturation where differentiation becomes quite difficult to achieve once markets have received and consumed almost every distinguishing features ever possible. Wireless or Mobile Communications and Multimedia semiconductors are a very booming and flourishing segment today chiefly due to to the current increasing demand of information availability by mobile users. Moreover just as this article suggests, growth is shifting to lower-end markets and that's where the most dynamic user adoption for reason of the mobile factor uniquely characterized and accentuated in such markets. We all know how Qualcomm is leading the charge in this domain with quite a significant share but we are considering the fact that things are shifting towards lower-end market, then we should be watching players such Mediatek which is making big strides in the industry by offering performance and affordability. This will certainly heat up the competition and create an very versatile and flexible marketplace where we could see more departure from differentiation factors to a more critical one which is cost. However we are entering the new era of wereables, Internet of Things, Ubiquitous and ambient networks which will certainly keep differentiation still relevant and bankable.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
