Semiconductor Clock & Timing Report
Published By : Consulting Services & Associates Published Date : 2016-05-26 Category : Electronics Sub Category : Semiconductor No. of Pages : 1

Global chip sales are off to a sluggish start in 2016, according to new figures from the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA). Worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $26.9 billion in January, down 2.7% from December and down nearly 6% from the same period in 2015. "Global semiconductor sales decreased in January across most regional markets and product categories, largely due to softening demand and lingering macroeconomic headwinds," said John Neuffer, president and CEO of the SIA. "Despite these challenges, modest market growth is projected for 2016, following essentially flat sales last year."

What goes for Semiconductors as a whole, goes for Semi Timing as well. In terms of trending anyway.... We all have heard and know that the Processor is the “Brain” behind the system, but few understand that it is the Clock signal that acts as the Heart, and the clock signal is the engine that steps each move the Processor makes. Categorized as an Analog Mixed Signal Semiconductor design, when looking at the markets, use cases and applications or doing any research and/or analysis you must first consider exactly what you are counting in the mixes....

CS &A LLC has, over the more than 10 years since we made entry, been very careful when looking at the whole or sub-segments that actually make up this high valued Analog Mixed Signal Semi TAM. As such we have developed a now widely accepted set of definitions, associations and segmenting that has become known and accepted as the most accurate model today for Semiconductor Timing.
