The leadership of the company Samsung in the smartphone market a long time does not surprise anyone. Moreover, another proposed technique Samsung is very popular. But, according to a new message, Samsung managed to take first place in one market segment, which traditionally was the leader of Intel. The two companies will also consider a new and promising area of application that they create chips.
Sales have been engaged in the semiconductors division of Samsung Electronics, according to a new report, made in 2017 62,03 billion U.S. dollars, which provided the company the role leading provider of chipsets with a market share of 14.5%. In comparison with last year the increase was 53.4%. Furthermore, Samsung managed to surpass the former leader of the chipset market, Intel, the sales of which amounted to 61,46 billion and world market share of 14.3%. In more detail this subject was considered by the RIS Manny (Manny Reyes) on the resource page androidheadlines.com.
The communication is based on data collected by the analytical company IHS Markit. For the first time in the history of the industry the semiconductor business, Samsung showed a one-year advantage over Intel.
In addition it is also reported that the third place in this ranking took the company SK Hynix, the total sales of which amounted last year of 26.64 billion U.S. dollars, representing a 5.2% share of the market. Behind SK Hynix in the rankings you will find other suppliers of components for electronics — Micron Technology, Broadcom and Qualcomm.
According to the IHS, Markit, the combined share of Samsung Electronics and SK Hynix in the semiconductor segment of the world market was 20.7%.
The South Korean tech giant shows an increase of its presence in the chipset market because it develops processors for different products and applications. In September last year, Samsung announced that it plans to introduce chipsets, manufactured in accordance with the 11-nanometer technological process, is suitable for mid-range phones.
Relevant today the model line of smartphones middle class Samsung Galaxy A are based on the chipsets that are manufactured in accordance with the 14-nanometer process.
Thanks to the 11-nanometer process will result not had examples in the past, the level of energy efficiency for the given price segment. However, the performance will be reduced. This process, provided that the consumption will not be considered as a priority, as expected, is able to increase performance to a maximum of 15%.
The production of the chipsets in accordance with the 11-nanometer technological process starts in the first half of 2018. In February of this year, Samsung Electronics has reportedly begun preparations for the debut of its first chipset designed for cars. It is assumed that it can call Exynos Auto. It is expected that this chip will find application in cars, the company Audi, which is one of the current Samsung partners in the automotive segment.
It should be noted that Intel is also working on designed for unmanned vehicles technologies, the prospects for which greater detail was considered by Paige Tanner (Paige Tanner) on the resource page marketrealist.com.
An important step of Intel in this direction is the acquisition of Mobileye, supplier of ADAS (advanced driver assistance system, “advanced driver assistance system”). The goal of Intel is to integrate its Atom processors and technology from Mobileye EyeQ5 in a scalable and efficient platform for automated driving. With power consumption only 10 watts, EyeQ5 has a processing capacity of 23 TOPS. The company intends to use the platform based on EyeQ5 to ensure that the fifth level (Level 5) – driving.
It is noted that now there are five levels of automated driving. Intel second (Level 2) and third (Level 3) level 11 avtoproizvodtelyami are considered, the total production volume is more than 50% of the world production volume.
At CES 2018 , Intel said that it plans this year to supply processors based on the EyeQ second level to 2 million cars. Delivery of technical solutions of the third level for unmanned vehicles known chip maker has planned for 2019.
Thus, the automotive industry is becoming more and more important for companies who supply to the global market for electronics components. After all chips have long been find application not only in smartphones, tablets, and PCs.
