Hybrid Devices-The Memory Market's New High Value Product Category
What are Hybrid Devices and why will it move the semiconductor industry forward?
This report outlines the market opportunities, market and financial drivers, financial opportunities, near-term technology enablers required for introduction, and technology hurdles and market challenges for advanced Hybrid Devices.

 

Hybrid Devices Promises High Impact on Consumer Electronics
How can key technology events be evaluated to predict Consumer Electronics Trends?
This report examines steps to acceptance and success of a consumer product. Hybrid Devices can have a significant revenue growth impact for new memory products for Consumer Electronics. Hybrid Devices with their inherent flexibility promise to significantly alter the architecture of Consumer devices, shift BOM (Bill of Material) costs to variable purchase plug-in Hybrid Devices, enhance competitive differentiation, and provide for early adoption of new memory technologies.

 

Conventional Memory and the Impact of Hybrid Devices
How does memory technology adapt to enable the rapidly evolving consumer mobile market?
Hybrid Devices provides numerous advantages to OEMs as well as to memory manufacturers. By using HD versus conventional discrete memory in a design, the risk of adoption of any new memory type would be reduced. Early confirmation of acceptability reduces investment risk, and the period required to become a mainstream product. Multiple packaging options allow greater flexibility in feature sets, and in the mix of volatile and non-volatile memory solutions.Market acceptance of HD concepts in the Consumer segment demonstrates the current state of the art and confirms the attributes of flexibility and lower manufacturing costs. Market acceptance of HD concepts in the Consumer segment demonstrates the current state of the art and confirms the attributes of flexibility and lower manufacturing costs.

 

The Impact of Hybrid Devices on the ASSP Market
Why are Hybrid Device concepts impacting the ASSP Market?
In the next decade, as designs cross the 30nm lithography boundary and approach 12nm, Hybrid Devices that incorporate standard memory, new memory, logic, processors, and analog on a single fabrication process will again transform the platform IC market and many types of Hybrid Devices will displace current ASSP devices as a preferred choice for custom platform IC products.

 

Four Generations of Hybrid Devices Enable Now and Future Smartphone Market
How can each of the four generations of HD enhance the features of the Smartphone?
Hybrid Devices will accelerate the shift in Smartphone system architecture by moving BOM costs from the core phone to the accessory Hybrid Devices. This will accomplish the rapid transition to a Cognitive Radio Smartphone that will use the wireless spectrum more efficiently. HD will enable vendors to add functionality without incurring additional base handset costs.
