STERLING, Va., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Current Analysis, the leading provider of tactical intelligence and competitive response solutions in the telecommunications, networking, and business software industries, has expanded its research and market intelligence services to cover semiconductor markets through the addition of the company's new intelligence service, CurrentCOMPETE(TM) Mobile Device Silicon (http://www.currentanalysis.com/news/silicon/).
2010 promises to become the year of rebound for the overall mobile device silicon market. After enduring steep challenges during the global recession of 2008-2009, the mobile device semiconductor market segment is poised to experience double-digit growth rates during 2010, leading a recovery in the worldwide semiconductor market. Burgeoning global uptake of mobile devices, including high-end smartphones and entry-level handsets within developing regions, directly correlates to the recovery within the mobile device silicon market segment.
The competition among mobile device silicon vendors will intensify during 2010 as a result. Key trends in the space include robust debates regarding discrete architectures versus integrated architectures, the potential evolution of "superphones," the trending toward ARM processor-centric netbook-related technologies, the growing importance of embedded software development cycle management for SoC designs, expansion of dual-mode technologies and the ongoing expansion and diversification of new and enhanced applications among several key trends expected during 2010.
"Emerging silicon architectures are integrating wider ranges of functions such as radio transceiver, baseband modem, power management systems, and multimedia engines," says Ron Westfall, Current Analysis Research Director for Silicon, "raising the competitive stakes among handset vendors to meet service provider requirements."
Delivered through the company's continuously updated, Web-based platform, the new service provides silicon vendors, DSP suppliers and handset OEMs with real-time intelligence and expert analysis about the markets, companies, and technologies in what is arguably the most competitive semiconductor market segment today.
