Semiconductor

  • Keeping Pace with Semiconductor Technology

    TechInsights has the largest and most competent team in the industry with deep technical knowledge across all our areas of domain expertise. We are globally diversified with offices and laboratories in all major market geographies.

    IP and Technical Intelligence Services

    TechInsights can help semiconductor companies to protect their market position, manage costs and identify additional revenue streams through:

    • Competitive benchmarking, patent landscaping and patent mapping to assist in market entry due diligence decisions. Understand the intellectual property and technology strengths of your competitors to enable differentiation, guide important technical design decisions and guide the acquisition of patents to enable lower risk market entry.
    • Patent monetization services: licensing, infringement and brokerage. We provide experienced, objective 3rd-party analysis at component, circuit and system levels to support assertion of patent claims and patent brokerage valuation.
    • Costing and supplier intelligence: understand the underlying cost structure of components to support price negotiation with vendors.

     

    Technical Capabilities

    • Design Analysis: evaluation of device circuitry and functionality. Circuit extraction, feature analysis, waveform analysis and device comparisons help jumpstart your learning curve, accelerate time to market and reduce revision costs.
    • Process Analysis: analysis of device structure, fabrication processes, package design, and transistor characteristics help determine competitive device cost, quality, and performance.
    • Cost Analysis: determination of chip complexity and IC cost of interest to OEMs sourcing components, fables companies making design decisions and manufacturers trying to understand price points.

     

    Extensive Resources

    Over the years we have amassed an incomparable library of devices and technical analysis reports including:

    • Device (chip) Library (32,000+ cataloged devices),
    • Prior Art Library (datasheets, and papers, etc. dating back to the mid-1970’s),
    • Analysis Reports (8400),
    • Product Teardowns (1200), search services to access patent databases and technical literature, and our DIE PHOTO LIBRARY®
