With silicon-based computing gradually constrained by the bottleneck of Moore's Law, many IT companies have started turning their development focuses to AI computing which requires a new architecture to resolve its performance and power consumption issues. Another focus is quantum computing, which is completely different from the existing silicon-architected systems, but has strong capability in resolving complicated problems, according to DIGITIMES Research's latest study.
The quality of optical systems has a high influence on users' immersion experience when using VR, AR, or MR. With the birth of Micro LED-based micro-displays in 2022 and the popularity of optical waveguide technologies among optical combiner developers, the combination of the two technologies is expected to become the mainstream specification for AR head-mounted devices (HMDs), according to DIGITIMES Research's latest study.
China remains the largest manufacturing industry in the world, making its industrial robot market a segment full of potential. Although around 70% of industrial robot suppliers in China are not domestic companies, they continue expanding capacities in the country despite concerns toward China's instability amid geopolitical and trade issues, according to DIGITIMES Research's latest study.
As a result of the feeble smartphone sales in their home market China and inflation-induced smartphone purchases reduction by overseas consumers, Chinese smartphone brands, to lower channel inventory levels, stayed conservative with their global shipments in the third quarter of 2022 with combined volumes amounting to around 140 million units in the quarter, down 5.5% sequentially and 18.2% on year, according to the latest figures from DIGITIMES Research's Smartphone Tracker.
The tech war between the US and China is growing fiercer, prompting Taiwanese server ODMs to accelerate their pace to move parts of their capacities out of China, and ODMs' shares of capacity from outside of China are expected to rise to nearly 50% by 2023, according to DIGITIMES Research' latest finding.
