    • To NCKU Compound Semiconductor Class A 2008 Year End Update on Current Semiconductor Industry Eco-System James Chu 2009.01.05
    • Outlines Heads-Up! Open Your Business Eyes The Driver for CMOS Technology Evolution The Semiconductor Industry Eco-system Episode 1: CMOS scaling: Challenge & Opportunity Episode 2: SEMI Market & Economic Status Diagest Episode 3: What Options Besides CMOS ? Briefing: New Business Start Up Process Summary
    • Heads-Up! Open Your Business Eyes
    • Opportunity Recognition Part 1 General Deregulation (cell phone) or Regulation (health care) Unequal Development Pace (80’s hw/sw) Many fragmented industries Service Shift (fi, 30% to 80% in 25 years) Off-shore Manufacturing Early in Product Lifecycle Missing Niches
    • Opportunity Recognition Part 2 High Potential Ventures Criteria Industry Issues Structure (Sellers fragmented) Market Size (Large ,but not too big, and Growing) Growth Rate (Accelerating) Market Capacity (Demand not filled) Market Share Attainable Reducing Cost Conditions are BAD Economic Issues Profits after tax (High) Time to Breakeven (Less then 2 years) Return of Investment (ROI) is 25% and up Capital Requirements (Low) Gross Margins (High)
    • Opportunity Recognition Part 3 High Potential Ventures Criteria Harvest Issues Value-Added Potential Exit Mechanisms Nurtured by Founders Capital Market Context - Timing Competitive Advantage Issues Degree of Control over Prices Entry Barriers Team
    • IC Chips System Requirement : the Driver
    • Episode 1: CMOS scaling: Challenge & Opportunity
    • Consumer Stationary Performance Trends
    • Consumer Stationary Design Complexity Trends
    • Consumer Stationary Power Consumption Trends
    • Consumer Portable Process Performance Trend
    • Consumer Portable Design Complexity Trend
    • Consumer Portable Power Consumption Trend
    • Recent ADC Performance Needs for Important Product Classes
    • Preliminary Summary Design complexity (from desired function diversity) and Power Consumption are two key trends for the design of SOC Consumer chips. Stationary Device: Processing performance is the most important differentiator. Multiple Data Processing Engines (DPEs) to enhance the performance Software enabled functional flexibility. Longer lifecycle and broader application area. Portable Device: Desire High Performance-to-Power ratio. The trend indicate the power consumption substantially exceeds the performance requirements. Shorter product life cycle due to dedicated functions.
    • A Example : Intel CPU evolution on - Ion increase increase performance - Ioff reduction reduce leakage

    • Preliminary Summary CMOS Scaling bring in lots of new materials into manufacturing process. The recent CMOS scaling barriers overcomed by Strain Silicon and HKMG. CMOS Scaling will continue to 22nm (2012 available) , III-V material play more role in the scaling. CMOS Scaling likely to end in 22nm and followed by nano wire devices, optical connect , carbon nanotube.
    • Episode 2: Digest of Economic Status & Forecast
    • From Intel IDF 2008
    • Electronic Industry Independence
    • It is interesting to note that every time there was a two-year double-digit decline in capital spending, the following year showed a double-digit increase. Moreover, in every instance in the past, in the second year after the two-year decline, a 59% or greater surge in capital spending took place! If the post 2008/2009 time period follows the historical pattern, 2010 will show a double-digit capital spending increase, which correlates nicely to IC Insights’ current forecast for a 15% increase in spending in 2010.
    • From Strategic Marketing Associates
    • WW Capital Spending – by Company
    • The Forecast
    • WW Electronics Sales Growth will be Flat, if not Negative, from 2008 to 2009.
    • Inventories are on the Rise
    • VLSI’s CPPI Predicts Another Negative Year
    • Preliminary Summary IC market revenue will be flat to minus in 2009, despite the shipment continue to grow. Optoelectronic revenue growth is outpacing the crowd. IC Capital Equipment Business will highly impacted in 2009. But likely to rebound in 2010. FPD Capital Equipment Business has worst outlook.
    • Episode 3: What besides CMOS ?
    • Optoelectronics, Sensor, and Discrete Report (O-S-D Report).
    • Regional Market Shares of O-S-D Products
    • Reminding : the Business Eyes

    • Lesson #8: Cross the Chasm Entrepreneurs often find the majority of adopters to be a large enough market, but have a hard time transitioning to serving them Th eC Number of ha sm Adopters in Time Period Entrepreneurs often find it easy to sell to innovators and early adopters, but can’t sell enough to make the business worthwhile Early Innovators Adopters Early Majority Late Majority Laggards Time
    • Summary CMOS Scaling has create new material / process technology challenge, so as business opportunity, the continue growth is inevitable. Besides CMOS, the Optoelectronic / MEMs / Discrete devices enter into rapid growth phase. 2009 will be a low year and consensus of economic rebound likely in 2010.
