Semiconductor Shipments Trending Down. Integration or Consolidation?

August 1, 2019 Embedded Computing Design

A recent embedded industry report indicates that chip content in systems is projected to drop by 25 percent in 2019. Huh?

As more and more every day objects are electrified and digitized, that doesn't make much sense - unless you consider that perhaps more and more discrete semiconductors are now being packaged into fewer and fewer highly integrated yet more powerful devices.

This week, the Embedded Insiders crunch the numbers and debate what could be behind them. Is it a real phenomenon or funny math? Tune in and judge for yourself.
