Quanta to stay top AIO PC maker in 2017
wtorek, 18 kwietnia 2017 11:53

Quanta Computer is expected to remain as the largest all-in-one PC maker worldwide in 2017 thanks to orders from HP and Apple. Currently, HP outsources all of its new consumer AIO PC orders and 50% of its existing enterprise models to Quanta, while Apple's orders are all given to the ODM, according to sources from the upstream supply chain. Quanta declined to comment on its orders or clients. Digitimes Research's numbers showed that iMac shipments were 2.53 million units in 2015 and dropped to 2.26 million units in 2016 because Apple has not updated its iMac product line for a while.

Worldwide semiconductor revenue forecast to increase 12.3 percent in 2017
wtorek, 18 kwietnia 2017 10:04

Worldwide semiconductor revenue is forecast to total $386 billion in 2017, an increase of 12.3 percent from 2016, according to Gartner, Inc. Favorable market conditions that gained momentum in the second half of 2016, particularly for commodity memory, have accelerated and raised the outlook for the market in 2017 and 2018. However, the memory market is fickle, and additional capacity in both DRAM and NAND flash is expected to result in a correction in 2019.

DDR4 and DDR3 forecast to represent 97% of sizzling 2017 DRAM market
wtorek, 18 kwietnia 2017 08:05

The new, higher-speed DDR4 DRAM generation gained significant marketshare in 2016, representing 45% of total DRAM sales. Previously, DDR3 DRAM, including low-power versions used in tablets, smartphones, and notebook PCs, accounted for 84% of total DRAM sales in 2014 and 76% in 2015, but in 2016, DDR4 price premiums evaporated and prices fell to nearly the same ASP as DDR3 DRAMs. A growing number of microprocessors, like Intel’s newest 14nm x86 Core processors, now contain DDR4 controllers and interfaces. As a result, IC Insights expects DDR4 to become the dominant DRAM generation in 2017 with 58% marketshare versus 39% for DDR3.

Method improves semiconductor fiber optics, paves way for developing devices
sobota, 15 kwietnia 2017 20:04

A new method to improve semiconductor fiber optics may lead to a material structure that might one day revolutionize the global transmission of data. Researchers are working with semiconductor optical fibers, which hold significant advantages over silica-based fiber optics, the current technology used for transmitting nearly all digital data. Semiconductor fibers can transmit both light and electronic data and might also be able to complete the conversion from electrical to optical data on the fly during transmission, improving delivery speed.
