The IC Cost and Price Model allows users to easily estimate the cost and price of most low power silicon-based ICs such as SOCs, microprocessors, ASICs, DRAM, NAND and more. 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.

Vendor competition in the merchant silicon vendor landscape and the continued increase in share of captive silicon vendors such as Samsung, HiSilicon, and Apple continue to be a challenge on ASPs; however, we believe that price declines may be far less benign than that experienced over the past two years post-consolidation and as operating models of companies are refocused on profitability.
