Research and Markets: Mobile Devices and their Semiconductors

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kpzwvj/mobile_devices_and) has announced the addition of the "Mobile Devices and their Semiconductors" report to their offering.

The market for these devices has exploded creating a market for over two billion processors. According to the report:

- Over three quarters of a billion smartphones will ship in 2016

- Feature and other phones will hit 869 million units in 2016

- Almost 300 million tablets will ship in 2016

- E-book readers shipments could reach 100 million a year by 2016

- Handheld game consoles will hit 91 million by 2016

The processors powering these devices will be truly amazing, consuming remarkably little power, built in the latest nanometer technology, and delivering unbelievable performance and functionality. And although all of the devices will share some functionality and capabilities, no single device will kill any of the others ... at least immediately. Each device will have a different form, primary function, and price. All will be connected all the time, and most will have 3D displays and cameras.

More than 16 processor companies and 4 IP suppliers, will be chasing this market. Compared to the four or five processor companies chasing the PC market that makes the mobile processor market over populated by four-to-one-is a consolidation coming? Are there too many suppliers chasing the same customers?

The report includes a historical perspective that illustrates the sharp growth devices have enjoyed recently. For example, he first standalone tablet was the GRiDPad in 1989. In 2001 Microsoft reinvented the concept calling it a "pen Computer". And then in 2010 Apple brought the category to life with the iPad. The first smartphone was the IBM Simon in 1992, then Nokia entered the market 1996 and since then, the segment has taken off like a rocket.

Companies and organizations analyzed or mentioned in the report include: Action Semiconductors:, AMD, Apple, Broadcom, Core Logic:, Freescale, Fuzhou RockChip, HiSilicon:, Ingenic Semiconductors, Intel, Marvell, MediaTek:, Nvidia, Qualcomm, Renesas:, Samsung, ST-Ericsson, Telechips, Texas Instruments, WonderMedia, Zii Labs, IP Suppliers, ARM, DMP, Imagination Technologies, MIPS, and Vianvte.

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks. We're in the midst of a wave of excitement around AI such as hasn't been seen for a few decades. But those previous periods of inflated expectations led to troughs of disappointment. This time is (mostly) different. Applications of AI such as predictive analytics are already decreasing costs and improving reliability of industrial machinery. Pattern recognition can equal or exceed the ability of human experts in some domains. It's devel...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
