Top 25 fabless IC suppliers

IC Insights has released its top 25 fabless IC suppliers for 2009.
Chip supplier Qualcomm remained its top position, followed by AMD and Broadcom. There are nine fabless IC suppliers that had sales of $1.0 billion or more. 17 are located in the U.S. There are six Taiwanese (MediaTek, Novatek, Himax, Realtek, Mstar and Ricktek), one Japanese (MegaChips), and one European (CSR) on the list.

IC Insights expects an increasing number of Taiwan- and China-headquartered companies to enter the list in the future.

The numbers are for IC sales only and do not include optoelectronic, sensor, or discrete semiconductor revenues, states IC Insights in their Research Bulletin.
