Singapore semiconductor industry association sme growth

  1. 1. Growing Singapore’s Semiconductor Industry an SME PerspectiveMike Holtmholt@get2volume.com Turning technology into cash
  2. 2. Example Singapore Fabless Company: SemitechCompany Profile Fab-less semiconductor company  Re-start of Semitech Innovations with new management, investors and board Located in Singapore, Melbourne (AU) and California Multiple generations of PLC devices in production  Captures 14 years and $18M of investment Robust communications on noisy power lines
  3. 3. Singapore Semiconductor GrowthUnrealized Opportunity Singapore is Unique. Opportunity in this Uniqueness  Fabless SME growth enables overall SME growth  New company growth enables industry sustainability  Significant opportunity via Singapore semiconductor SME growth  Singapore uniquely positioned as a semiconductor growth center Singapore is Unique: Almost No Semi Companies Created  Singapore is no longer a competitive place for fabless SME’s  This can be changed: All the pieces are here.

  7. 7. What is Different About Singapore? Singapore Unique Advantages … Unleveraged for Semiconductor SME’s Broadbased Local Ecosystem  Ecosystem Not Tapped  Foundry, Test/Assembly  Local foundry, test/assembly focus only on established volume customers  VC (some semiconductor experienced)  Very limited investment appetite and  Established MNC’s environment  Semiconductor talent base  Few MNC spin offs Good for New Companies to Locate  Local talent typically in operations  Government programs execution roles rather than new business creation  MNC Focused Location Advantages Good Spin off Opportunities  Government programs and KPI’s designed  Universities, RI’s for MNC’s  Broad based capabilities – needs sector  Big company advantages like IP protection, focus to create leverage and synergies taxation, … do not benefit SME’s  No cohesive semiconductor community Advantages are Perceived, Not Real, SME Advantages
  8. 8. Opportunities for Unfair AdvantageLeverage Singapore UniquenessLeverage  Demand aggregation: wafers, EDA, test/assemblyEcosystemSmall area  MNC spin out approach.Concentrated  SSIA SME-MNC collaborationMNC Base  Industry focus areas. SME involved consortiums  MNC-SME collaboration approachesGovernment  Spin off funding and growth approachessupport  SME opportunity creation consolidation. Improved ROI
  9. 9. Approaches to Enable Fabless Growth in SingaporeLeverage Singapore Unique Advantages Enable a Semiconductor Focused Company Incubator Demand aggregation across multiple companies Attract semiconductor start ups from other markets Spin off coordination with MNC’s resulting in future acquisition/spin in access options. SSIA Emerging Semiconductor Company Role SME-MNC collaboration Industry voice to semiconductor incubatorAlign Government Approaches to Emerging Semiconductor Company Needs Company aggregation to improve ROI.
