IDC: Booming times for eBook and tablet semiconductors

Posted on Saturday, April 09 2011 @ 11:45:02 CEST by

Research firm IDC reports global revenue for media tablet and eBook reader semiconductors soared 2,000% to $3.3 billion in 2010.
Worldwide revenues for media tablet and e-book reader semiconductors grew over 2,000% to US$3.3 billion in 2010 as semiconductor suppliers enabled OEMs to bring new products to market less than eight months after the iPad launched, according to a new report by IDC. With the arrival of Android Honeycomb, dual-core processors, and increased bandwidth, IDC expects tablet and e-book reader semiconductor revenues to grow by 120% in 2011.

"The opportunity for semiconductors in media tablets and e-book readers has exploded and semiconductor suppliers are scrambling to bring to market semiconductor and software platforms to enable these products," said Michael Palma, research manager for Consumer Semiconductor research at IDC. "Beyond semiconductors, these suppliers are also providing OEMs with much of the system software as well as support for access into app stores, which is helping to dramatically shorten product design cycles."
