Which semiconductor vendors are the top four IC design companies and why? (According to Gary Smith)

Gary Smith, probably the best-known EDA analyst in the country, has just published his top-4 list of IC design houses marketing semiconductors. Here’s the short version with brief explanations. (For the whole megillah, see his free report.)

  1. NVIDIA—Best vision of the emerging heterogeneous processor cluster architecture. (Note: see my previous blog post about next week’s free, live NVIDIA presentation on GPUs.)
  2. Samsung—Leadership in memory plus SoC design capability.
  3. STMicro—Highly talented design teams and CAD group.
  4. Broadcom—Analog design automation.
