Technology and Market Analyst Photonics, Sensing and Display at Yole also said: “An interesting feature of this new application is that it spreads through various systems: smartphones, smart speakers, smart watches, wireless earbuds, cars, smart TVs and...
The unusual ecosystem of image and vision for AI
Yohann Tschudi, PhD. Technology & Market Analyst at Yole Développement (Yole), said “AI has completely disrupted hardware in vision systems, and has had an impact on entire segments.” A good example, is the penetration of Mobileye within the automotive market segment.
Applications are driving the long-term growth of memory
Despite some cyclicality and seasonality, the stand-alone memory market has experienced extraordinary growth over the past decade. This has been driven by important megatrends, such as mobility, cloud computing, AI, and IoT.
Medical-grade devices vs. consumer wearables
Smartphone ubiquity, sensor miniaturisation, and ease of integration have increased the number of wearable products on the market, to the point where such products are now achieving performance levels suitable for medical use-cases. But how will medical wearables make patients healthier - and why now?
The camera module industry, a dynamic ecosystem
The camera module industry has reached a new stage in its development. With $27.1bn of global revenues generated in 2018, the market maintains a 9.1% CAGR for the next five years. This industry, which covers image sensors, lenses, voice coil motors, illuminators and camera assemblies, is showing an impressive $45.7bn market by 2024.
Automotive leading the way in AI
In 2018, only robotic vehicles could claim to possess in-car AI. The associated computing market, driven by computers equivalent to what is found in datacenters and associated with rather low volumes, brought the computing market to $156m in 2018. Over the next ten years, with the development of robo-taxis and shuttles, this market will remain the main revenue generator for AI in automotive.
Advanced packaging at the heart of innovation
The semiconductor industry showed impressive figures in 2017; +21.6% YoY growth to reach about $412bn. Without a doubt, the industry is entering a new age, where innovation and disruption are the key words. In addition to mobile, Yole Développement (Yole) analysts identified emerging mega-drivers that are step by step changing our world.
microLED displays closer to commercialisation
As reported in Yole Développement (Yole) ‘microLED Displays 2018 report’, microLED Display technologies are improving rapidly. The report underlines the progresses made over the 18 month period preceding its release, nevertheless, many challenges remain. Last month, a variety of companies presented new microLED displays prototypes at Las Vegas CES.
Power GaN: Who is part of the playground?
Eight years have passed since the first commercialised power GaN device. People in the power electronics industry are becoming increasingly familiar with the names of startups that are actively promoting GaN technology. Efficient Power Conversion (EPC), GaN Systems, Transphorm or Navitas, in addition to the power electronics leaders, are also highly involved in the development of GaN technology.
A virtuous cycle in the uncooled IR sensing market
Reportedly, 2018 could be the year when the uncooled infrared imager and detector market reaches a tipping point with the involvement of big companies. As a consequence, the industry is showing impressive volumes and CAGR. They announced an annual growth of seven percent in value over the 2018-2024 period.
Wireless charging expecting a boost from the smartphone industry
“The way consumers charge their smart devices is about to drastically change,” asserted Antoine Bonnabel, Technology and Market Analyst and part of the Yole Développement’s Power and Wireless team. According to the ‘Wireless Charging Technologies and Markets 2018’ report, the wireless smartphone charging systems market is expected to surpass one billion units per year by 2024.
Would Apple change the power GaN world?
Over a long period, industrial companies followed up at a distance the development of GaN-based solutions mainly managed by R&D institutes and laboratories. Today the context has changed.
MiniLED adoption first driven by LCD displays
The excitement about microLEDs has grown since Apple acquired technology startup Luxvue in 2014. All major display makers have now invested in the technology and other semiconductor or hardware companies such as Intel, Facebook Oculus and Google have joined the pool. Amidst this flurry of news and activity, a new term emerged in early 2017: miniLED.
