With the cost of developing a new semiconductor fab anticipated to surpass US$5.0 billion by 2015, more and more IDMs are adopting a fab-lite outsourcing model. The growth in the merchant foundry industry has also provided fabless IC design firms with access to reasonably-priced advanced-process capacity without the need for huge capital expenditure, and IC design has therefore grown as a share of the semiconductor market to 25.8%, up from less than 10% in 2000. This Digitimes Special report focuses on how the foundry sector supports IC design customers through design services and trends among the key industry design platforms.
Abstract
Comparison of IC costs with the evolution of process node

With the cost of developing a new semiconductor fab anticipated to surpass US$5.0 billion by 2015, more and more IDMs are adopting a fab-lite outsourcing model. The growth in the merchant foundry industry has also provided fabless IC design firms with access to reasonably-priced advanced-process capacity without the need for huge capital expenditure, and IC design has therefore grown as a share of the semiconductor market to 25.8%, up from less than 10% in 2000.

This Digitimes Special report focuses on how the foundry sector supports IC design customers through design services and trends among the key industry design platforms.
