Industry can be classified as Micro-Processor Unit (MPU), Dynamic Random Access Memory Chip (DRAM), Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC), Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory (EPROM), and Digital Signal Processor (DSP). Micro-processor Units and Digital Signal Processor provide multitasking in mobile phone. Digital signal processors are used in mobile phone to process or interpret different types of signals received. These processors convert analog signal into digital signal and back to facilitate smooth functioning of audio devices. Industry can also be categorized as digital and linear IC. Linear IC is used in RF (Radio-Frequency) and AF (Audio-Frequency) amplifiers. Increasing design complexity may hinder demand over the forecast period.
Key players in the smartphone integrated circuit market include Qualcomm, Skyworks Solutions, Samsung Electronics, Intel, Synaptic Inc. Texas Instrument, Mediatek, Renesas Electronics, STMicroelectronics, Infineon, Spreadtrum Communication, Broadcomm, Dialog Semiconductor, Freescale Semiconductor, Fairchild Semiconductor International, Fujitsu Semiconductor, and Richtek Technology. In February 2014, Qualcomm Technologies announced the launch of multimode and multiband chip featuring antenna switch and CMOS power amplifier for ZTE’s mobile phone, the Grand S II LTE. Semiconductor vendors are increasingly adding applications on IC to enhance its functionality. With increase in mobile phone display driver, touch panel called as Touch and Display Driver Integration (TDDI), and integrated circuit, industry participant are anticipated to collaborate with IC manufacturers for competitive advantages. Samsung Electronics offers a wide range of high performance smart card solutions for Java cards, transportation cards, banking cards, mobile phones, electronic passports, and e-commerce applications.
