    SiTime is the leading supplier of MEMS timing parts with success in consumer and industrial applications. It finds itself in a position where it is pulling away from its main competition, Microchip (Discera), while other competitors like IDT and SiLabs no longer advertise MEMS timing. Sand 9’s acquisition by ADI is likely to make ADI self-sufficient for timing and perhaps a timing supplier in the future. In 2015, SiTime won a KHz MEMS oscillator part (SiT1552) in the Apple Watch and Apple Pencil. In 2016, SiTime won a MHz oscillator part... Please sign in for the rest of the article.

    CY 2016 has proven to be a difficult year so far for InvenSense due to slowing end product markets and reducing share in large smartphone OEMs. In the first 2 quarters of CY 2016 InvenSense has reported between 20% and 43% revenue decline from the same quarters last year. Wisely, InvenSense is already pushing into other product and sensor categories in order to turn the tide on its revenue decline. Please log in for the more detail.

    The light sensors market is one where new (time of flight) sensors, increasingly popular (heart rate) sensors add healthy revenue to the standard light sensor market. Like the MEMS microphone market, the light sensor market is also one where sensor ASP can vary dramatically by performance and packaging and this fact is integrated into the discussion in the report.

    This report tracks the currently booming market for fingerprint sensors in mobile handsets, tablets and notebooks. Their use in the iPhone 5 in 2013 was followed by adoption by many other OEMs in 2014 and 2015. These sensors are becoming a standard feature in high-end smart phones, with further growth expected.
