The scope of this report is restricted to Analog and Mixed Signal (AMS) IPs, which are circuit blocks that can handle both analog and digital signals. The Analog and Mixed Signal IPs are developed by several firms, such as Synopsys, Inc., Rambus.com, Forza Silicon Corporation, and MIPS, among others. North America is the major region due to the presence of advanced research institutes and increasing investments from players.
Increasing Reusability of AMS Blocks
The AMS blocks are generally made of the same components, such as transmitters, receivers, and operational amplifiers, among others. This enables their design to be standardized and improves their applications in several devices. The ability to produce standardized IP blocks that can be used in different devices greatly reduces the operational costs. With advancements in software that allow analog circuits to migrate over similar system processes, the reusability of AMS blocks has increased and this is a major driver for the market. Devices such as mobiles, CPUs, and other telecommunication devices have a standard architecture. This also adds to the increasing reusability of the AMS blocks.
Increasing Applications for Analog and Mixed Signal IP
The end-user industries such as telecommunication, automotive, and mobile, are growing at a fast pace. In addition to the growth of the industry, the development and advancements in the products is tremendous. Mobile phones are getting smaller and telecommunication devices have a high demand for robust components for high performance. The AMS IPs can provide for these applications with their smaller size and improving performance standards. New technological advancements and research in AMS IP market are factors that are expected to boost the market.
North America is the Largest Region
Increasing technological focus and investments from market leaders in this region are driving this market, making it the the largest market for AMS IP. The growing number of players in the North American region have resulted in increasing collaboration, which leads to growing technology. Europe is the second largest region, followed by fast growing Asia-Pacific region. Europe has observed an increase in the players providing AMS IP products. However, the growing requirement for AMS IP products in the Asia-Pacific region has allowed the manufacturers a new market to grow.
