    Do You Have the Data Needed to Make the Right Business Decisions?

    Integrated circuit (IC) manufacturers worldwide are facing significant pressure to find new revenue and escalate innovation in order to stay competitive. Tracking the competitive design wins to determine which parts drive revenue is becoming increasingly important. IC manufacturers require competitive intelligence for research and development purposes, but also to assist in generating targeted patent litigation or licensing campaigns as an alternate source of revenue.

    IRIS Overview

    IRIS is a web-based platform that enables users to query over 30,000 products to make faster, better, and more cost-effective decisions about their competitive positioning, technology options, R&D strategies, intellectual property positions, and marketplace opportunities. This platform leverages TechInsights' industry leading database of product teardowns including cellular handsets, digital cameras, multimedia players, navigation devices, wearable and wellness devices, gaming devices, and the various elements that make up the digital home.

    The intuitive IRIS web browser interface provides a range of search filters to provide system level metrics ranging from package/die characteristics to bill of materials (B0M) and feature sets. Locate specific parts on either a system level or IC level by searching against function, manufacturer, part number, or a combination of criteria.

    Users of IRIS can generate dynamic reports to identify trends across hot features, devices, and manufacturers’ product designs and costing data. These reports can be used by industry stakeholders to make better IP-related business and investment decisions.
