Design Engineering Contends with New Architectures & Pricing Challenges
Moore’s Law continues to hold dominance in the industry, and so we see much discussion around the opportunities presented by new geometries especially for Consumer Electronics (CE) and enterprise markets.
After all, the volume of components demanded by CE and enterprise sectors is significantly higher, cycles rapidly, and is affected by often sudden demand shifts. The industrial and manufacturing side of the semiconductor and electronics industry holds growth potentials from new geometries and chip architectures as well, but these sectors face some different challenges. Bridging the two sides of the semiconductor and electronics industry is that both are forced to rely on fewer and fewer fabs due to ongoing chip manufacturing consolidations while navigating the maze of barriers to entry continue to rise, restricting new competition from offering alternatives.
