The media reported today that market research firm Counterpoint Research released the third quarter global smart card system (SoC) market statistics report on Friday, the data show that if according to the income, Qualcomm in intelligent machine SoC market share of up to 42 %, Ranking first.
While Apple's A-series chip occupancy rate of 20%, ranked second; MediaTek ranked third with a share of 14%; ranked fourth in the Samsung Electronics share of 11%; surprisingly, Huawei HiSilicon chip Brand share of 8%, ranked fifth in the world.
In Qualcomm and Apple's share of nothing changes (Qualcomm rose 1%, Apple fell 1%), the latter three changes is still relatively large, although MediaThere hold the third, but the share of 18% compared with last year declined 4%, Samsung rose 3%, Huawei rose 2%. Overall, in the third quarter of this year, the worldwide smart phone SoC market revenue grew 19% over the same period last year, breaking the $ 8 billion.
Some friends may not know SoC, here and explain to you, in the smart phone, because of the high integration requirements, there is no way as the same as the computer CPU, graphics cards, network cards and other chips on the motherboard separately, so you need to They are all packaged together into a single "chip" called SoC.
For the future development of the mobile SoC industry, counterpoint research director Neil Shah said the mobile phone chip industry will move from a "nuclear war" to a more comprehensive mobile phone performance in the future. In fact, two years ago, the core of the number of mobile phone chips has been stuck in the eight-core fixed, and each of these two years are in the image processor, baseband performance, but in 2018, the artificial intelligence chip properties will be The development of the mainstream, just like this year Apple and Huawei in A11 and Kirin 970 to do that.
