Photo AmandinePizzagalli YOLE 2018– “Wafer for More than Moore applications is becoming a major market” on November 13 at 11:35AM during the Strategic Materials Conference
Amandine Pizzagalli, Technology & Market Analyst, Equipment & Materials at Yole Développement – Semiconductor Manufacturing

 Abstract: Wafer demand (including MEMS & sensors, CIS, and power, along with RF devices) for More than Moore (MtM) reached almost 45 million 8-inch eq wafers in 2017. Wafer demand is expected to reach more than 66 million 8-inch eq wafers by 2023, with an almost 10% CAGR2017 – 2023. Numerous megatrend market drivers will contribute to MtM devices’ growth : 5G (wireless infrastructure & mobile), mobile (including additional functionalities), voice processing, smart automotive, and Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), artificial intelligence. Regarding semiconductor material, although silicon is by far the most dominant, alternative non-silicon-based substrates like SiGe, GaAs, GaN, and SiC are increasing their importance within the MtM industry. Choosing the right substrate technology will strongly depend on the technical performance associated with the megatrends’s requirements, as well as the cost.The presentation will highlight the market trends and the impact on the wafer start for the different wafer substrates...

ClaireTroadec Casual YOLE2018 BD GreyBackground circle– “Who has the most to win (and lose)?” on November 14 at 10:45PM during the Market Briefing Session
Claire Troadec, Division Director, Power & Wireless at Yole Développement

Abstract: 5G will totally redefine how the radio frequency (RF) front-end interacts in-between the network and the modem. Indeed, new radio frequency bands, sub-6 GHz, and mm-wave (as defined in 3GPP release 15) pose big challenges for the industry. However, with these challenges comes opportunity to disrupt the market’s leadership. LTE evolution has led to complex architecture in today’s mobile phones, mostly due to carrier aggregation. Meanwhile, RF’s board area and available antenna space have been reduced, leading to a densification trend with more handset OEMs adopting power amplifier modules and implementing new technics, i.e. antenna-sharing between LTE and WiFi… More here


MilanRosina Pro YOLE2018 BD GreyBackground round– “How battery pack evolutions create opportunities for power electronics companies” on November 15 at 12:20PM during the Battery Session – Show floor – TechARENA 2
Milan Rosina, Principal Technology & Market Analyst, Power Electronics & Batteries at Yole Développement

Abstract: With energy densities increasing 5-8% year, batteries are making their way from conventional portable device applications into automotive traction and renewable energy grids. Only 5 years ago over 60% of the lithium-ion battery market was driven by consumer applications. In the meantime, there is a totally different mix of market shares for this technology. Consumer applications are now only representing a good 20%, automotive about 30% and the field of renewable energy roughly 40%. Thus, a more intense interaction with electronics is what we see today. However, the technology development of battery technologies is still mainly at a research level. Compared to other high-tech industries the progress in technological advancements of batteries, Li-ion and others (such as e.g. Na-S, Li-S), requires further and continuous cooperation among research and industry to reach higher market shares...

– “GaN and SiC power device: market overviewE” on November 15 at 2:00PM during the Power Electronics Session  – Show floor – TechARENA 
Milan Rosina, Principal Technology & Market Analyst, Power Electronics & Batteries at Yole Développement

Abstract: Wide-band gap (WBG) materials, in particular Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) devices have demonstrated the large potential for power electronic applications. According to Yole estimates, the market for SiC and GaN-on-silicon devices in power electronics will reach 10% of market share in five years. The first commercially available SiC diode has arrived to the market 18 years ago and since then progressively replaced silicon diodes in many applications. SiC MOSFETs has also become commercially available. The 2016-2018 period is crucial for SiC MOSFETs as well as for the whole SiC industry. Actually, SiC MOSFET manufacturers have improved the device reliability and performance. SiC MOSFET is gaining confidence of numerous customers and has penetrated into different applications. The availability of SiC transistor has enabled the realization of full-SiC power modules, providing the strongest benefits compared to silicon-based power modules.... More here


EricMounier Pro YOLE2018 BD GreyBackground– “Status, Challenges and Opportunities for MEMS and Sensors” on November 14 at 12:50PM during the MEMS Session – Show floor – TechARENA 2 Hall
Eric Mounier, Principal Analyst, Technology & Market, MEMS & Photonics at Yole Développement

Abstract: The dynamic is very positive for the MEMS markets. And although the market reached maturity, it is still expected to grow at a significant rate for the coming years: 18% in value and 27% in units, over 2018-23 for the global MEMS devices. With new mega trends such as robotic cars, autonomous vehicles, AI, AR/VR, 5G, Industry 4.0, … the demand for sensors will grow as for MEMS. Moreover, it is still a domain with a lot of innovation as new devices are in R&D today (speakers, gas sensors, hyperspectral imagers …). And this wave of innovation is also confirmed by the good 2017 business year realized by most of the MEMS players. The presentation will highlight the present and future of the MEMS markets, and how new applications such as smart vehicles, AI, mobility… will contribute to the business growth.
