Nobunaga Chai, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Friday 30 August 2013]

Taiwan's IC design industry registered growth of 21.5% sequentially and 13% on year in output value in the second quarter of 2013, thanks to growing demand coming from China's smartphone and tablet sectors, according to Digitimes Research.
