The camera has always been a major component of the smartphone and a key selling point among consumers. In the past, smartphone cameras lagged far behind even the most basic DSLRs as form factor and size constraints impacted picture and video quality. But technology has now advanced to the point where today’s top flagship devices are capable of delivering DSLR-like performance.

The rise of AI algorithms, advancements in multi-frame/multi-lens computational photography, more powerful processors, the addition of dedicated image signal and neural processing units and, of course, the compounding of R&D experience has resulted in today’s smartphone cameras rivalling dedicated imaging devices.

In fact, the smartphone’s comparatively compact form factor is an advantage, as clicking pictures and recording videos are becoming integrated into our daily lives through the growth of social media. The role of the camera has shifted to become a life tool, as end-users migrate from being simply consumers of content to creators.

This new direction that imaging has taken warrants further advancements in smartphone cameras, as we lean on technology to make the experience easier while allowing all of us to be more creative.

RISC-V Adoption Picks Up Pace

IP design around the chipset architecture, security and cutting-edge performance improvements matching the advancements in manufacturing process and material science have been the key to semiconductor supply chain. Intel has been dominating the CPU architecture for the computing market with its x86 instruction set but integrated mostly into its own chips. However, Arm with its “pure play” licensing of its cutting-edge chipset architecture revolutionized the smartphone market, which became the fastest growing and high-scale personal computing segment in the world.

However, the semiconductor industry over the recent years has seen significant shifts, from consolidation to power acquisition moves, which has exacerbated the geopolitical tensions between key economies with semiconductors becoming the key component of the “technology cold war”. Sanctions on Huawei, NVIDIA looking to acquire Arm and China’s domestic semiconductor ambitions have warranted the need to find alternative semiconductor IP providers and reshape the global semiconductor supply chain.

RISC-V ISA is probably the candidate in the spotlight leveraging an open-source architecture. But the key question is how RISC-V is aligned in terms of capabilities, potential opportunities, and adoption rates.

In this report, we will deep-dive into the global semiconductor IP landscape and find how the introduction of RISC-V ISA can compete with tech giants such as Intel and Qualcomm, and pure play providers such as Arm and Synopsys.
