Strategic Playbook for Power Electronics: Lessons from the IC Sector Evolution

December 22, 2014 | State of the Market Report

As silicon (Si)-based semiconductors struggle to keep pace with Moore's law, emerging materials like gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC) look to either disrupt Moore’s law or extend it in a “more than Moore” fashion. In fact, large semiconductor companies are now forced to fund next-generation technology developments with cash from their own balance sheets. However, to be successful while pursuing these new emerging materials, it is important to understand existing and established value chain trends as well as the overlap with the silicon semiconductor value chain. Lessons from the IC sector evolution offer valuable lessons in strategy for companies looking to play the emerging power electronics value chain
