CMOS image sensor market to witness growth owing to high adoption of innovative technologies
środa, 11 października 2017 07:51

The global CMOS image sensor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 12% during the forecast period, according to Technavio. The market is further categorized into four application segments, including consumer devices, automotive, security, and industrial. The consumer devices segment accounted for close to 83% of the market share in 2016. “The market is characterized by a technological shift from charged CCD sensors to CMOS because of the simple manufacturing process and low costs. Though CCD sensors offer better features, such as great light sensitivity and quality, their adoption is low because of their complicated design and high-power consumption. The consumer device segment will remain the key market driver during the forecast period owing to the increase in the demand for mobile-related applications,” says Chetan Mohan, a lead sensors research expert from Technavio.

Fujitsu Semiconductor and ON Semiconductor announce increased strategic partnership
wtorek, 10 października 2017 20:00

Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited and ON Semiconductor announced an agreement that ON Semiconductor will purchase a 30 percent incremental share of the Fujitsu’s 8-inch wafer fab in Aizu-Wakamatsu, resulting in 40 percent ownership when the purchase is completed. The purchase is scheduled to be completed on April 1, 2018, subject to certain regulatory approvals and other closing conditions. The two companies entered into an agreement in 2014, under which ON Semiconductor obtained a 10 percent ownership interest in Fujitsu’s Aizu 8-inch fab. Initial transfers began in 2014, and successful production and ramp up of wafers began in June 2015. ON Semiconductor plans to increase ownership to 60 percent by the second half of 2018 and to 100 percent in the first half of 2020, allowing ON Semiconductor to add capacity to their global footprint.

TSMC ready to spend $20 billion on its most advanced chip plant
wtorek, 10 października 2017 16:02

It’s getting more expensive for TSMC to stay at the top of its game. The biggest contract maker of chips is preparing to spend more than $20 billion on its next state-of-the-art plant as it’s built over the next few years: the price for staying ahead of Intel Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. in cutting-edge semiconductor production, founder Morris Chang says. TSMC spends some $10 billion annually to keep abreast of Intel and Samsung and safeguard its perch as the predominant player in bespoke semiconductors. But the cost of wielding the most advanced processing technologies is soaring as chipmaking gets increasingly intricate: TSMC may have to bump its yearly outlay to as high as $11 billion a year, the 86-year-old Chang said in an interview Friday.

Qualcomm offers EU concessions over $38 billion NXP takeover bid
wtorek, 10 października 2017 14:02

U.S. smartphone chipmaker Qualcomm has offered concessions in an attempt to allay EU antitrust concerns over its $38-billion bid for NXP Semiconductors, the largest ever in the semiconductor industry. Qualcomm, which supplies chips to Android smartphone makers and Apple, submitted its proposal on Oct. 5, a filing on the European Commission site showed on Monday, without providing details. The EU competition enforcer, which suspended the deadline for its decision on Aug. 17 for a second time while waiting for information data from Qualcomm, said it would set a new deadline once the company has complied with its request. The Commission is expected to seek feedback from rivals and customers in the coming days.

Sony jumps back into robotics after 12-year hiatus
wtorek, 10 października 2017 09:59

Twelve years after abandoning its robot business, Sony will relaunch it next spring with a robot for homes that resembles a dog. The company is now forming a development team of people formerly involved with Aibo, a robotic pet dog that captured media attention years ago. Sony has just emerged from a long restructuring period, but has yet to create products with new value. Still, the company hopes to compete with rivals in the U.S. information technology industry, which has a head start in artificial intelligence, by taking advantage of its expertise in mechanical engineering. The company's first foray into the field will be a robotic pet, frolicking like a real dog while controlling home appliances at voice commands.
