NEW YORK, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

European Fabless Semiconductor Report

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0208560/European-Fabless-Semiconductor-Report.html

Content

This unique report focuses on Europe and European IC design expertise. It highlights the considerable number of independent companies that supply the key enabling technology that allows European system companies to achieve early market entry and leading edge product performance. The strength of the IC design expertise in Europe, is one of the semiconductor industry's best-kept secrets, and partially balances the influence of the trend towards foreign ownership of European wafer manufacturing.

This report is essential for those planning the resources of subcontracting new product design in the semiconductor industry, and those involved in the final system end product. It will also prove invaluable for authorities and government departments in planning and directing economic growth, as well as companies seeking to invest in Europe. The report includes a profile on each of the approximately 350 enterprises active in this area, including details on their chosen technology and target markets, company size and structure, as well as contact details in a convenient one 'company per page' format. This information is also available as a company database in Excel format. This best-selling report has a proven track record as an invaluable research resource for sourcing IP, acquisitions and joint ventures.

The price of the report includes a free hardcopy and CD-ROM upon request.
