Mobile Graphics/Multimedia Chips Driven by Demands for Increased Performance, Integration, and Functionality

With the increasing use of media-rich content, Internet-connected mobile devices need robust multimedia performance to provide a quality user experience, reports In-Stat http://www.in-stat.com.  As a result, graphics, video, and audio are now at the forefront of semiconductor and system design.

Multimedia features have moved from simple co-processing functions to the forefront of semiconductor and system design.  However, there appears to be an alarming trend of fewer in-house and third-party solutions available despite the growth prospects of the mobile market.

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

  • The total available market (TAM) for Internet-connected devices is projected to grow at a 22.3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2013.

  • 91% of Internet-connected devices will be using processors with integrated multimedia acceleration, including 72% of mobile PCs, by 2013.

  • With fewer in-house multimedia solutions and third-party IP providers, ARM, CEVA, and Imagination are poised to benefit the most from increased multimedia functionality in mobile devices.

  • Carriers will account for over 60% of Internet device unit sales in 2013.

  • ARM, CEVA, DMP, Imagination Technologies and Vivente are all offering IP solutions to address the market.

  • There is no shortage of semiconductor chip vendors that are looking to address the burgeoning need.  They include Anyka, AMD/ATI, Broadcom, Chipnuts, Freescale, Intel, Jade Technology, MagicEyes, Marvell, MtekVision, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Renesas, Samsung, Texas Instruments (TI), VIA Technologies, Vimicro, and others.

This Market Alert is drawn from the In-Stat research,  Mobile Graphics & Multimedia Review (#IN0904446SI), which covers the worldwide market for mobile graphics and multimedia silicon. It includes:
