GSA conducts ongoing research and surveys, providing our members with a variety of valuable data. GSA produces a range of publications and reports that serve the semiconductor industry. Current reports are Internet of Things, Security in the IoT, Charting a New Course for Semiconductors – Rambus and GSA Report, Monetizing Semiconductors: From Silicon to Services – Rambus and GSA Report, and 3D IC Tour Guide.
3D IC Tour Guide GSA’s second edition of the 3D IC Design Tools and Services Tour Guide is a compilation of inputs from EDA, R&D, market research, and services companies that have committed significant resources to developing 3D and 2.5D technology to accelerate market acceptance of this important paradigm shift. Readers of the Tour Guide are able to view the 3D IC capabilities of these companies. As a benefit to GSA members, the Tour Guide is complimentary. Non-members may purchase the Tour Guide in the GSA Store. For questions regarding this report, contact Kole Giles. Read More
Monetizing Semiconductors: From Silicon to Services In 2016, Rambus published a think piece titled “Charting a New Course for Semiconductors.” The paper explored a diverse range of challenges faced by the industry, including increasing development costs, shrinking margins, market saturation and accelerating M&A activity. These challenges have only become more pronounced in 2018, as the newly consolidated semiconductor industry actively seeks a return to stability and organic growth within a viable and collaborative business paradigm. Consequently, companies are beginning to acknowledge the potential of new markets and downstream revenue opportunities as they explore a more comprehensive “silicon Read More
Charting a New Course for Semiconductors – Rambus and GSA Report Rambus and the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) recently collaborated to explore the current market dynamics in the semiconductor industry. With numerous reports illustrating the slowing in sales and profits, companies have begun consolidating and re-shifting priorities and strategies. As we look at the future of the market, this report identifies several key factors and paths to monetization that will help shape our industry going forward. With this report, there is great opportunity for the industry to come together to discuss and evaluate how each company can play Read More
Security in the IoT – McKinsey & Co. and GSA Report “Security in the IoT” is the second study resulted from the ongoing collaboration between McKinsey & Company and the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA). It is an assessment of security-related challenges for semiconductor companies and the identification of opportunities for monetization on security features. The report focuses on 3 industry verticals: Automotive, Industrial, and Smart Buildings. It is the result of a survey involving more than 100 industry experts, 30+ in-depth C-level executive interviews and monthly meetings of the GSA Steering Committee with ten C-level executives from Read More
Internet of Things- McKinsey&Co and GSA Report McKinsey & Company and the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) recently collaborated to understand the implications of the Internet of Things (IOT) for the semiconductor industry and the economy as a whole. This effort was overseen by a steering committee of 11 senior executives from GSA member companies and McKinsey. It involved the following methods: Interviewing 30 GSA members who were senior executives at semiconductor companies or at companies in adjacent industries that are part of the IOT ecosystem, such as network equipment and industrial automation Surveying 229 semiconductor executives Read More
Southern California based AONdevices, led by voice and audio chip expert Mouna Elkhatib, has developed a neural network technology that can reliably recognize human speech and audio commands in very noisy environments. The technology can be implemented in a small footprint SoC for always-on battery powered applications such as smartphones and wireless headsets. The company is planning to build specialized deep learning chips for voice and audio processing and expand the framework to other applications in adjacent markets. AON's algorithms are based on the latest innovations in the quickly-evolving deep learning technology field, resulting in performance that as of now has Read More
