Study Goals and Objectives
Silicon technology has come a long way since the first microcontrollers were introduced in 1993. Microcontrollers permitted integration of memory with processors allowing specialized embedded applications. As the technology shrank and matured, more and more peripherals were integrated into a microcontroller giving rise to a System on a Chip (SoCs). These SoCs are popular today and stand at the center of any electronic device. The SoCs have even more importance in Consumer Electronic (CE) devices as a well-designed and featured SoC can not only help bring down the cost but also offer powerful features that help differentiate devices from one other.
Multimedia SoCs (also referred as multimedia chipsets) primarily deal with audio, image and video processing. These features are at the heart of a wide range of electronic devices such as TVs, DVD players, digital cameras, MP3 players, etc.

Each of these devices features one or more chipsets that processes multimedia in conjunction with a Central Processing Unit (CPU).
This report will focus on different semiconductor chipsets available for multimedia and will explore technologies and markets. The report will look at the total available market for multimedia chipsets. The market is also further segmented when applicable and the reader is provided with pertinent information. The report also provides readers with the market ecosystem and explains the trends shaping the future. Key players in each category are also discussed along with market share information. A forecast of total market in each category by dollar, volume and geography over the period of next five years is included. The report also includes an analysis of patents filed in this marketplace by various companies.
In addition to multimedia chipsets, the report also explores the role played by Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) in the multimedia market. DSPs provide flexibility over the hardware solutions provided by several chipsets but often lack the performance power. This report will explore tradeoffs in using DSPs rather than a multimedia chipset.
Emerging technologies that define the future of multimedia chipsets are also discussed. The report also includes an analysis of patents filed in this marketplace by various companies.
A research study aimed at analyzing this market is useful to anyone connected to this field. It provides students, executives, and those interested in technology with insight into the underlying technology, market forces, and trends that will help them understand the market dynamics.
Multimedia Chipset Market Segmentation
There are multiple ways of segmenting the multimedia chipset market. For example, one could separate the market based on the functionality provided (audio, video, graphics) or by the technology used (microprocessor only, microprocessor with hardware components, DSP, DSP with microprocessor etc). However, most of the chipsets are marketed towards a typical market such as DTV and hence we’ve segmented the multimedia SoC market based on the end product.
The multimedia chipset market is segmented as follows:l Chipset for digital television (DTV).l Chipsets for set-top box and Internet protocol TV (IPTV).l Chipsets for digital video players (DVDs).l Chipsets for handheld devices (including cell phones).l Chipsets for audio devices (MP3 players).l Digital signal processors.l Chipsets for imaging products
Each of the markets has its own characteristic and the chipsets therefore are optimized for each device for features and pricing. This is not to say that one can not use a chipset targeted towards other markets. For example, it is perfectly feasible to create a digital camera using a DSP or even chipset targeted towards the handheld device market. However, when collecting and presenting the data, we’ve considered the marketing jargon used by various SoC companies as primary reference.
