Our design platforms are unique combinations of technology, key IP, and manufacturing knowledge to generate not just world-class semiconductors, but to fully engineer new products and break ground in new markets. Each design platform is targeted at a certain application to ensure the best fit for that market’s requirements, while maintaining a high level of flexibility in what IP and manufacturing techniques can be used. Design platforms are an essential way that customers can build confidently at the edge of Moore’s Law, reaping advantages in power, performance, area, and schedule.
While the segments discussed capture ideal uses of these design platforms, the future changes fast. Customers can anticipate modifying them heavily and for us to build on them with new processes and IP.
Mobile devices are the pinnacle of fully-integrated consumer electronic devices. As such, mobile devices are subject to both constant refinement and reinvention of what constitutes a mobile device. Meeting that pace of innovation demands leadership technology, organizational agility to reduce time to market, and a robust ecosystem to draw on a broad IP portfolio.
Network infrastructure is essential to the modern world, spanning communications and data center applications. Improving network infrastructure demands three key pieces of technology: technology density, high-speed SerDes, and innovative packaging.
