MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – December 19, 2012 - Estimating that the embedded processor market will top $4 billion in 2015, The Linley Group, the industry's leading source for independent technology analysis of semiconductors for networking, communications, mobile, and wireless applications, released their latest report, “A Guide to Embedded Processors.” While citing evidence that this market size is large enough to sustain multiple suppliers, The Linley Group analysts predict the industry will coalesce around a few large companies that successfully innovate and execute.
The Linley Group believes that the emergence of new processor technologies, shifts among preferred instruction-set architectures and transitions in end-market technologies, such as LTE, will require much more critical evaluation of embedded processors and their suppliers. The report provides an in-depth look at 32- and 64-bit high-speed embedded processors with one to four CPU cores. This report analyzes the products, capabilities and strategies for multiple companies including Altera, AMD, AppliedMicro, Broadcom (NetLogic), Cavium, Freescale, Intel, LSI, Marvell, Mindspeed, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, Via Technologies, and Xilinx.
"A Guide to Embedded Processors" is authored by Joseph Byrne and Thomas R. Halfhill, senior analysts at The Linley Group. The report is currently available directly from The Linley Group and further details can be found at http://www.linleygroup.com/embedded.
