Over the years, we have seen a wide range of advancements in semiconductor design services. The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) announced that the global semiconductor industry posted sales of $468.8 billion in 2018 – the industry’s highest-ever annual total and an increase of 13.7 percent over the 2017 sales.

As the demand for semiconductor services continues to increase and the industry witnesses a broader range of new technology innovations, we can clearly see a move toward lower geometries (7nm, 12nm, 16nm, etc.). The key drivers behind this trend are benefits in terms of the power, area, plus various other features that become possible with lower geometries.

The proliferation of lower geometries has fuelled business in a number of areas, especially in the sectors of mobility, communication, IoT, cloud, AI for hardware platforms (ASIC, FPGA, boards).

Delivering a lower technology design project on time is important in today’s dynamic and competitive … Read More
