Recent PMIC Innovation and an Automotive Market Outlook
40 nm BCD, Automotive Qualification and More and Strategy Analytics’ Automotive PMIC Market Outlook
Register to watch this webinar on demand.
Power management integrated circuits (PMICs) are becoming ever more complex while the market continues to grow at a rapid pace. The automotive PMIC market alone is worth > $3 billion and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.3% from 2021 to 2026 .
TSMC was the first to introduce a high-density wafer-based fan-out package technology solution called Integrated Fan-Out (InFO). This technology targets higher pin count applications, such as application processors (AP). Apple was an early adopter of this new technology, first used in the A10 application processor of the iPhone 7, introduced in late 2016.
During this webinar, learn of the leading innovations found within the mobile PMIC space such as:
- A 40 nm BCD process which enables wireless mobile device charging
- ‘Integrated voltage regulators (IVR)’ where an entire voltage regulation circuit can be condensed into a single discrete package
- The challenges that automotive PMICs face including advanced safety and redundancy features
Vehicle production forecasts and associated electronics systems demand will also be shared, as well as some of the macro-economic factors that have the potential to disrupt the outlook for the automotive industry. Gain exclusive insight into topics including:
- Key differences between the automotive sector and the commercial/consumer markets as it relates to semiconductors
- Trends that will drive growth for the automotive semiconductor industry
- A market breakdown in terms of semiconductor type
- A market outlook for PMICs across the powertrain, body, chassis, safety and driver info domains

Subject Matter Expert, Power
Stephen Russell is TechInsights’ Subject Matter Expert for Power with over 15 years' experience in wide bandgap (WBG) device fabrication and characterization. He received his PhD in Electronic Engineering in 2013 from the University of Glasgow with a thesis entitled ‘High Performance Hydrogen-Terminated Diamond Field Effect Transistors' and demonstrated what was at the time the highest frequency diamond transistor reported. Continuing in academia, he researched high voltage silicon carbide devices, and successfully demonstrated 3.3 kV and 10 kV variants. He won the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics – best paper award in 2018 for the paper 'High Temperature Electrical and Thermal Aging Performance and Application Considerations for SiC power DMOSFETs'. He also led an exploratory research project in gallium oxide for power devices, presenting findings to the Royal Institution, London. He moved into industry in 2018 to lead development of a new silicon IGBT product line and instigated an R & D project to use silicon carbide JFETs in circuit protection applications. In 2020, he joined TechInsights as subject matter expert for power semiconductor devices keeping abreast of developments across the entire industry.
