Darnell Group’s eleventh-edition analysis of “DC-DC Converter IC Forecasts: Applications, Amperages and Emerging Designs” is the first report to provide a quantitative forecast for the adoption of PwrSiP and PwrSoC (power supply in package and power supply on chip) products. During the forecast period of 2011 to 2016, this emerging segment will grow rapidly to become a significant revenue opportunity. In addition, this unique report identifies several other important trends in this market such as the continued, rapid adoption of digital power technologies, the continued growth in market share for switching regulator ICs at the expense of both LDOs (low-drop-out regulators) and charge-pump designs, and more.
“Leading the changes is the adoption of PwrSiP and PwrSoC,” stated Linnea Brush, Senior Analyst with Darnell. “PwrSiP is actually in the forefront of this market, and it could be the ’advance guard’ that eventually leads to PwrSoC adoption. By 2016, the PwrSiP/PwrSoC market is expected to see sales of over 100 million units, since PwrSiP is already commercially available and becoming more competitive,” she continued.
