Gartner Upgrades Semiconductor Research Offerings

Gartner, Inc. announces three new offerings, which extend its semiconductor research portfolio. These offerings are designed to assist the semiconductor industry, its customers and investors to develop and manage successful business strategies.

The latest semiconductor research offerings include System-on-Chip (SoC) Worldwide, Memory Worldwide and Memory Silicon Demand Forecast Worldwide.

"While the chip market may appear to have entered a phase of steady, relatively modest growth, Moore's Law continues apace. Pressure on chip companies to make the right technology and market decisions is considerable, as on it rests the future of the multi-trillion dollar electronics industry," said Jim Eastlake, managing vice president for Gartner's worldwide semiconductor research group. "With the launch of these important new research offerings, Gartner continues to demonstrate its total commitment to support the semiconductor and electronics industries. With more that 50 semiconductor analysts worldwide, we cover every aspect of semiconductors including: design, manufacturing, device markets and applications."

"These Gartner Dataquest offerings demonstrate our commitment to be our client's indispensable business partner -- to deliver insight and advice that will enable them to exceed their business potential today and tomorrow," said Ken Davis, senior vice president of Gartner's High Tech & Telecom Programs.

SoC is the key technology driving smaller, faster, cheaper electronic systems, and is highly valued by users of semiconductors as they strive to add value to their products. The Gartner Dataquest System-on-Chip Worldwide service examines the entire SoC food chain including: chip design, intellectual property (IP), packaging, silicon foundry and device trends by key end-application market. The service includes analysis of ASIC/ASSP/FPGA vendor strategies, market share statistics and detailed five-year forecasts.

The Gartner Dataquest Memory Worldwide service provides coverage of the global semiconductor memory market, included granular, quarterly analysis that tracks the state of market. The segment includes market statistics on NAND and NOR Flash, DRAM, SRAM, EPROM, EEPROM, ROM Flash Cards, USB Drives, emerging memory types and specialty memory. It provides competitive, pricing and technical analysis designed to gain insight into market cycles, technology trends, emerging technologies, applications and market opportunities that influence company investment decisions.

Gartner says its Memory Silicon Demand Forecast Worldwide service provides the level of silicon demand information required to enable effective planning for the manufacture of both DRAM and Flash NAND chips. This statistical model forecasts the units of DRAM and NAND Flash memory chips consumed by density, in more than 100 electronics applications. It then converts memory units into millions-of-square-inches (MSI) of silicon. The model makes assumptions for process-node, die size, wafer size and yield in the conversion of chip-type units into silicon area. Thus the industry will be able to analyze the impact on silicon consumption of a significant ramp up or down in the production of devices such as cellular handsets or PCs. This program delivers the data and analysis required for the entire silicon supply chain for manufacturing high-volume memory chips, from electronic equipment production through to wafer consumption and silicon demand.
