The Cost of Modern System-on-a-Chip (SoC) Development

The complexity of developing today's high performance chips applies not just to technical issues, but the business side as well. One of the more complicated tasks is obtaining accurate data for the cost of the entire development project.

International Business Strategies, Inc. (IBS), an independent research firm specializing in the electronics industry, recently conducted a series of case studies with some of the industry's leading SoC developers in several key market segments in order to quantify the costs associated with developing a modern SoC. The report not only addresses the costs of developing 0.15 and 0.13 micron chips from specification development through first prototypes, but also offers insight into the challenges developers face with deep sub-micron design and a model for assessing the revenue impact of being late to market.

Synopsys Professional Services, specializing in helping customers complete their deep sub-micron chips, is making a summary of the report findings available to its customers and prospective customers free of charge.
