Audio Signal Processor ICs & IP In Mobile Devices 2014 – Opportunities For IC and IP Vendors

Mobile devices continue to be a prime area of growth for audio processors. Even sections of the market which are starting to hit their peak annual shipments, for example, high-end smartphones, continue to develop with new applications such as “always on” voice control requiring new functionality and driving developments in mobile device audio implementation. There are also sections of the market, such as low-end smartphones, tablets, smart watches and mobile speakers, which will offer significant growth opportunities for both IC and IP vendors as device shipment volumes grow and audio processing requirements increase. This study assesses the opportunities for audio processor ICs and corresponding IP in mobile devices, demonstrating potential market sizes for both ICs and IP as well as competitive market assessment and vendor markets shares. Details of the new report, table of contents and ordering information can be found on Electronics.ca Publications’ web site. View the report: Audio Signal Processor ICs & IP In Mobile Devices 2014.

Graphene for Supercapacitors

While research continues to see if graphene can be used to produce the long charge times for supercapacitors so sought after by all-electric vehicle enthusiasts, graphene does have other properties that could prove to be very attractive for other applications. For one, its high electrical conductivity is significantly better than activated carbon, which could open up applications in electronics. It also can be made into a structure unlike activated carbon, which is just sort of lumped together. With its ability to be structured, graphene has another attractive property for electronic applications in which it could be designed into electronic components.

This report looks at the strengths and weaknesses of graphene in supercapacitor applications and how those stack up against established materials and other potential materials being experimented with for supercapacitor applications.

To accomplish this aim this report looks at how supercapacitors are currently produced, who produces them and who among those producers appear to taking the prospects of graphene seriously. We also look at graphene manufacturing and the methods are best suited for leading to a material for the electrodes of supercapacitors. Details of the new report, table of contents and ordering information can be found on Electronics.ca Publications’ web site. View the report: Graphene for Supercapacitors.

The Taiwanese Desktop PC Industry, 3Q 2014

This research report presents shipment volume and value forecast and recent quarter review of the Taiwanese desktop PC industry. The report includes desktop PC shipment volume, value, ASP, shipment by tier and maker, product mix analysis, as well as breakdowns by customer, shipment destination, business type, and assembly location. The content of this report is based on primary data obtained through interviews with desktop PC makers. The report finds that shipment volume of the Taiwanese desktop PC industry reached around 16.9 million units in the second quarter of 2014, up 6.1% sequentially and 21.4% year-on-year. The desktop PC industry, with the majority shipped being the commercial ones, has been benefited greatly from the wave of replacement demand for commercial PC systems in 2014. Shipment value arrived at around US$4.58 billion in the second quarter. In anticipation of the release of more desktop PCs powered with new Intel and AMD platforms in the second half of 2014, the industry’s shipment volume is projected to grow further. It is anticipated that the industry’s shipment volume will top around 17.5 million units in the third quarter of 2014, the highest quarterly total ever. Details of the new report, table of contents and ordering information can be found on Electronics.ca Publications’ web site. View the report: The Taiwanese Desktop PC Industry, 3Q 2014.
