New Market Opportunities for Wireless Connectivity Combo ICs

Purchase

Wireless connectivity, in its many forms, is a well-established enabling technology in numerous electronic device markets. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS are becoming ubiquitous in certain devices such as smartphones with attach rates approaching 100% in some cases. Rapid growth is forecast for newer technologies such as NFC and ZigBee.

The market is going through a transition phase, as attach rates increase for two or more technologies IC vendors are responding to customer demand for lower cost solutions by integration. Wireless connectivity combo ICs, i.e. ICs with two or more wireless connectivity technologies integrated on a single chip, are becoming the norm in some markets (e.g. smartphones) and are growing in popularity in many others. The next phase in market development is further integration of wireless connectivity technologies into platform ICs (also referred to as SoCs).

This study assesses wireless connectivity combo IC growth in a range of end markets including:

  • Smartphones
  • Media Tablets
  • Laptops
  • Ultrabooks
  • Flat Panel TVs
  • Set Top Boxes
  • Automobiles
