The semiconductor market is driven by innovation with its products being the core of modern society and industry.
Semiconductors are central elements of every modern technology spanning telecommunications, medical devices, home appliances, entertainment, military, transportation and endless other applications.
Moore's law stating that the number of transistors that can be placed on a chip doubles every 18-24 months has held true for the last 40 years.
However, the costs in terms of R&D, new technologies, manufacturing processes and supporting services makes the semiconductor industry one of the most volatile also.
The semiconductor industry consists of a number of different types of contributors - integrated device manufacturers, fabless companies, design and IP licensing and foundries.
The semiconductor industry value chain consists of primary activities (wafer production, design, production, logistics, marketing and sales) and support activities (HR, financing, purchasing, asset management and inventory).
The Semiconductor industry data model set consists of Enterprise, Business Area, and Data Warehouse logical data models designed for companies developing products and components for the semiconductor industry.
