Synopsys: India leads in wireless IC design focus

Keywords:wireless IC design? mobile application? India?

A study by Synopsys Inc. showed that Europe may no longer be the hotbed of wireless IC design as about 38 percent of Indian designers are working on designs targeting wireless and mobile applications compared with just about 22 percent in Europe. And Israel, Taiwan and Singapore all come in with a higher focus than Europe.

Over the course of 2006 and 2007 Synopsys found 2000 respondents around the world to indicate whether the application for their design was wireless or mobile within consumer, communication and computer segments.

Without seeing the question "as put" it's hard to know quite what that means and Synopsys does not state whether the respondents are only involved in IC design.

San Jose and the west coast of the United States, scored 23 percent; Boston was lower at 21 percent; Europe took 22 percent; India came top at 38 percent; Israel and Taiwan both appear to have registered 25 percent; and Singapore scores 28 or 29 percent focus on wireless and mobile.

The study, however, found no respondents in Japan or China, or perhaps they were not sufficiently numerous to be significant.
