The overall patent landscape is pretty young with 82% of patents filed since 2006, says Yole Développement
«2.5D, 3DIC and TSV Interconnect Patent Investigation», a patent analysis from Yole Développement.
Yole Développement announces its 2.5D, 3DIC and TSV Interconnect Patent Investigation report. Yole Développement’s investigation aims at providing statistical analysis of existing IP to give a landscape overview together with an in-depth investigation on 5 player portfolios selected by the analyst. Also, don’t miss the patent ranking and detailed analysis of the key patents.
A very young patent landscape dominated by 10 companies...
The report also provides a database of all the relevant patents Yole Développement’s analyst has analyzed in an Excel file which allows multi-criteria searching. The criteria are basically those the company used for the technological segmentation:
Yole Développement found 4 main types of business models among the top 10 assignees involved in this mutating middle end area:
It is also interesting to notice that the USA is the early player increasingly involved in 3DIC since 1969. China and Korea are new players since 2005.
This complete description of the patent landscape is included in the first part of the report and provides all the background materials for the 3DIC patent landscape analysis. The report provides a complete analysis of the patent landscape including geographical origins of the patents, companies or R&D organizations that have been granted the patents, historical data on when the companies that have applied for patents in the last 20 years, inventors of the patents, expiration status, R&D collaborations…
Understanding the patent portfolio of the top 10 3DIC assignees
For each of these companies, the report provides an in-depth analysis of its patent portfolio, highlighting the following points:
This analysis of each company provides an in-depth view of the strengths and weaknesses of the patent portfolio of each company and the developments that are now implemented by these companies.
An overall patent ranking to identify the most promising patents!
These parameters enable patent potential to be evaluated through 4 dimensions. The final patent potential is the average of scores for each parameter. A score between 1 and 10 is thus calculated for each dimension and for the global patent potential.
Methodology of the analysis
Note: The data were collected in December 2012. The results corresponding to the years 2011 and 2012 may not be complete since a significant number of documents filed during these years might not have been published yet.
