In-Stat/MDR reports that customer-specific, MOS cell-based designs, containing one or more blocks of embedded SRAM, will see its worldwide revenues grow from $5,654.6 million last year, to $7,725.6 million by the year 2007, posting a CAGR of 11.5 percent.

"Memory, particularly static RAM-based memory, is one of the most common functions utilized in a wide variety of semiconductor products, ranging from standalone products, to ASICs and ASSPs, as well as Field-Configurable Standard Products (FCSPs)," said Jerry Worchel, a senior analyst with In-Stat. "However, while the static RAM is the most common function embedded in cell-based, customer-specific designs, it is also a very real estate intensive function."

According to In-Stat, as MOS cell-based, customer-specific products make up the largest single functional segment of the overall MOS cell-based market, the communications sector will dominate consumption of these products, with the majority of applications being in the communications infrastructure, i.e., networking, basestations, etc. Further, the embedded SRAM communications market is expected to account for an average of about one-half of all product dollars consumed, between 2002 and 2007.

Meanwhile, In-Stat said that Japan will be the leading consumer of customer-specific products containing embedded SRAM, accounting for nearly 40 percent of all product dollars. The Americas will follow Japan accounting for slightly over 30 percent of all embedded SRAM dollar consumption.

Furthermore, of the five major embedded SRAM architecture categories defined; single-, dual-, multi-port, 1-transistor, FIFO, cache and other, the market research firm reports that it will be the single-, dual-, multi-port category that will represent the most incorporated architecture, being included in over 90 percent of all design starts averaged over the forecast period.
