Silicon Demand

Silicon Demand

Wafer demand for semiconductors by device type tends to be evenly split over time. Logic/MPU and memory ICs stay evenly balanced due to system architecture. The same is true for analog ICs and discrete semiconductors. Read more

Trends by Node

Trends by Node

Silicon wafer demand for chip making continues to favor tighter nodes with greater growth. Some say Moore's Law is dead, but the data proves it wrong. Devices with dimensions smaller than 20nm will consume more than half of all silicon by 2020. Read more

Beating the Silicon Cycle

Prevailing over the Silicon Cycle is one of the biggest issues companies face. The industry has violent swings that affect every part of the supply chain. Worse, they tend to be unpredictable. The companies that beat the cycle do so by optimally balancing reacting with planning. This presentation covers how this is done while covering the near-term outlook for the industry.
