IC Insights Releases New Study on Optoelectronics, Sensors, and Discretes
Scottsdale, Arizona — April 11, 2006 — The semiconductor universe consists of integrated circuits (ICs) and optoelectronic, sensor, and discrete (O-S-D) components. For years, O-S-D components were an afterthought. Many of these devices were typically built using "dinosaur technology"—processes of 5.0-micron or greater. Little interest or excitement was generated from this area.
Times have changed. Rapid growth in the IC industry has promoted more growth among optoelectronic, sensor, and discrete components. Portable electronics such as notebook PCs, PDAs, digital cameras, and cell phones require more O-S-D devices for power management, switching power supplies, and battery-charging systems. Greater use of optoelectronic and sensor equipment in cameras, cars, and other platforms has stirred much more interest in the once-overlooked O-S-D market.
Now, in a first-of-its-kind study, IC Insights reveals developing trends and provides an in-depth analysis and forecast of this growing segment in its new O-S-D Report—A Market Analysis and Forecast for Optoelectronics, Sensors/Actuators, and Discretes.
The O-S-D Report provides complete coverage of the optoelectronic, sensor/actuator (including MEMS-based devices), and discrete marketplaces. Market outlooks, end-use applications, developing trends, and leading supplier rankings are included within this nearly 200-page study. For extensive market analysis and forecast data for the growing optoelectronic, sensor/actuator, discrete segment of the semiconductor industry, IC Insights’ O-S-D Report is your must have reference tool.
The O-S-D Report is affordably priced at $1,990. Users can order the O-S-D Report and The McClean Report—A Complete Analysis and Forecast of the Integrated Circuit Industry to receive complete coverage of the semiconductor industry and save $200 off the total price.
