Gerry Byrne, founder of edalics, will be at DAC in San Francisco from June 24 to 28 and also in San Jose on June 21 and 22. If you wish to discuss any opportunity or just discuss the latest EDA news, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a meeting.
Global semiconductor revenue grew to $111.1 billion in Q1 2018, or 20% vs. Q1 2017 (SIA), extending the recent strong growth of 22.5% growth in Q4 2017 and 21.6% 2017 full year growth to $412 Billion. Gartner is forecasting further solid growth in semiconductor revenue to $470 billion for 2018. Of the two major EDA […]
Global semiconductor revenue hit another record high of $114.0 billion in Q4 2017, demonstrating strong and consistent growth of 22.5% vs. Q4 2016 (SIA), following 22.2% growth in Q3 2017 and 23.7% growth in Q2 2017, with 21.6% 2017 full year growth to $412 Billion. Gartner is forecasting further healthy growth in semiconductor revenue for […]
Global semiconductor revenue hit a record high of $107.9 billion in Q3 2017, growing strongly by 22.2% vs. Q3 2016 (SIA), following 23.7% growth in Q2 2017 and 18.1% in Q1 2017, with 2017 full year forecasts now nudging up towards 20%. In October, Gartner raised its forecast for 2017 semiconductor revenue growth once more […]
Global semiconductor revenue hit a new record high of $97.9 billion in Q2 2017, growing strongly by 23.7% vs. Q2 2016 (SIA), following an already strong 18.1% growth in Q1 2017. In July, Gartner raised its forecast for 2017 semiconductor revenue growth once more to 16.8% (from prior forecasts of 12% and 7.2%), to $401.4 […]
Whether you consider the Design Automation Conference (DAC) a nerd fest or a show case of the latest EDA and semiconductor IP innovations, competition for DAC attendees attention does present a challenge for the sales and marketing operations of exhibitors and it has brought out some very unorthodox and innovative corporate marketing videos. My favourite “CAD to the bone” is […]
Global semiconductor revenue growth accelerated again to 18.1% during Q1 2017 vs. Q1 2016 (SIA), following 12.3% growth in Q4 2016. There’s more good growth forecast in the Semiconductor market, with increases in both DRAM and NAND pricing and Gartner raising its forecast for 2017 semiconductor revenue growth to 12% (from a previous 7.2%). This […]
During Q4 2016 global semiconductor revenue growth accelerated to 12.3% vs. Q4 2015 (SIA), to achieve record 2016 annual semiconductor revenues of $338.9 billion, 1.1% higher than in 2015. With this positive semiconductor industry background, Synopsys returned to strong 14.8% Q4* growth vs Q4* 2015, only to be significantly eclipsed by Mentor’s 41.7% growth rate, […]
