The commercial battle for next-generation power semiconductors is evolving. IGBTs, SiC and other technologies are geared for the niche-oriented markets at 1,700 volts and higher. But what is the best technology for the larger 600- and 1,200-volt markets? both super-junction MOSFETs and IGBTs are ramping up on 300mm wafers, making them less expensive than GaN and SiC. In comparison, SiC MOSFETs are ramping up on 100mm wafers, while GaN-on-silicon is running on 150mm substrates. This report analyzes and forecasts the traditional power semiconductor market as well as next generation devices.  Market shares of vendors by type are presented.

Microphones continue to be one of the best success stories in MEMS, with mobile device manufacturers adding increasing numbers of these devices to their phones to support advanced features, such as voice command and noise suppression. Silicon microphones have the potential to be the next high-volume MEMS application. With their compact and lightweight structure as well as high integration capability, these products are already in vogue in high-end markets, especially for hearing aid use. Hoping to tap the huge potential of MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems microphones), companies are gearing up to master the technology. The report examines the market for microphones, speakers, and end-applications.

Chemicals and materials are used in every processing step in the fabrication of silicon and gallium arsenide integrated circuits. Technological advances in Si and GaAs ICs have resulted in more stringent requirements in the purity and quality of processing chemicals and materials for cleaning, etching, and deposition. As linewidths decrease, the level and size of contaminants in both chemicals and the manufacturing cleanroom become increasingly important as it directly impacts device yield. This report addresses a number of important factors that will impact the consumption of chemicals and materials for manufacturing ICs with feature sizes <100nm: Technological issues and trends; Purity and particulate requirements; Chemical dispensing practices; Acid reprocessing; Strategic considerations for chemical users; Analysis and forecast of the worldwide chemical market; and trends in usage as devices features decrease. Market shares of vendors also presented.
