Cahners In-Stat Group Expects Silicon Opportunity to Reach 400 Million USB Peripherals by 2002.
NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 28, 1998--Cahners In-Stat Group forecasts explosive growth for Universal Serial Bus See USB.
(hardware, standard) Universal Serial Bus - (USB) An external peripheral interface standard for communication between a computer and external peripherals over an inexpensive cable using biserial transmission. (USB USB
in full Universal Serial Bus
Type of serial bus that allows peripheral devices (disks, modems, printers, digitizers, data gloves, etc.) to be easily connected to a computer. ) peripherals, creating a unique opportunity for semiconductor companies.
In 2002, the market research firm expects there will be nearly 400M PC peripherals supporting USB representing an IC Total Available Market (TAM) of more than $1B.
"USB will be the primary connection for human interface PC peripherals," said Scott Hudson This article is about the scientist. For the professional wrestling announcer, see Scott Hudson (announcer).
Raymond Scott Hudson is a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at Washington State University. , senior analyst for Cahners In-Stat Group's PC Technology Service. "Since USB technology can be integrated into microcontroller A single chip that contains the processor (the CPU), non-volatile memory for the program (ROM or flash), volatile memory for input and output (RAM), a clock and an I/O control unit. and other ICs, new competition with potential market share shifts will occur." The switch to USB is the inflection point Inflection Point
An event that changes the way we think and act.
-Andy Grove, Founder of Intel.
For example, the fall of the Berlin Wall was an inflection point in global politics and the commercialization of the Internet was an inflection point in technology. in peripheral and IC markets that will result in market share changes.

3. Cahners In-Stat Group, the advantages of USB are true plug and play capability, faster data rate transfers and eventual elimination of the traditional serial and parallel ports. "The primary disadvantage has been the limited number of USB peripherals available," explained Hudson.
To realize significant revenues from USB, silicon and peripheral suppliers must provide several general devices, like hub and host controllers and some specific devices, like peripheral controllers and modem chip sets.
