The semiconductor industry is undergoing an unprecedented number of changes. The electronic systems end market drivers are changing from personal computers to smart phones and tablets. Major consolidation is taking place in the industry particularly in memory. More and more companies are going to Fab lite and fabless companies are rising in importance.  Optical lithography has entered the multi-patterning era and EUV is late. 450mm is on the horizon. Planar transistors are transitioning to 3D FinFETs and FDSOI. New materials are being introduced at an increased pace. DRAM and NAND are facing fundamental barriers to scaling with new solutions needed.

Renewable, alternative energy technologies continue to grab the attention of private industries and world governments. Semiconductors are used in these technologies to convert the energy or power to something functional, such as converting solar energy into electricity. Semiconductors used in products such as inverters, include MOSFETs, IGBTs, SiC, microcontrollers, DSPs, and discretes. The overall global market for PV inverters more than doubled in 2010, driven by main European markets. While the top 10 inverter suppliers were European, IC manufacturers of these devices have a more global presence.

The IC Knowledge - IC Cost and Price Model is the industry standard for cost and price modeling of low power silicon integrated circuits. The IC Model is very easy to use, the user only has to make eight selections or entry's and there is help for many of them. The model then presents a detailed analysis of cost and pricing and offers over seventy options for customization. Cost includes wafer fabrication, wafer test, packaging and final test.
