Global Hot Swap Controllers Market 2016-2020

Global Hot Swap Controllers Market 2016-2020

About Hot Swap Controller

A hot swap controller has three main parts: metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) that acts as a power-control switch, a sense resistor to measure current, and a current-sense amplifier to monitor voltage drop. Based on the system requirements, end-users can choose hot swap controllers with varying specifications of MOSFET and current-sense amplifiers. Hot swap controllers are an indispensable part of any printed circuit board (PCB) or plug-in module. We expect the global hot swap controllers market to see steady growth during the forecast period considering the moderate growth of end-user markets such as telecommunications and computer hardware.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global hot swap controllers market to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Hot Swap Controllers Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global hot swap controllers market: Analog Devices, Linear Technology, Maxim Integrated, Microchip Technology, ON Semiconductor, Semtech, and Texas Instruments.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Miniaturization of semiconductor products will be a key trend for market growth. Rapid technological advances have led to the market seeing the availability of products that incorporate multiple features on a single platform. The sectors, such as communication, automotive, and consumer electronics, extensively use hot swap controllers. They use a combination of power management semiconductor ICs and other discrete power semiconductors, either as a monolithic device or as a system in a package. Since computers and networking and telecom equipment have board space restrictions, this integration helps reduce board space. The deployment of power management ICs in semiconductor devices not only enables high power conversion efficiency but also minimizes switching losses. As of 2016, electronic devices use semiconductors with circuit line widths in the range of 20 nm. However, ultraminiature circuits with line widths in the 10 nm range will be introduced during the forecast period.”

According to the report, hot swap controllers saves cost of system breakdown which will be a key driver for market growth. Hot swap controllers increase the cost of the product and add more components to the end products. It involves the costs of designing, testing, and installing the hot swap controller in a product and also the time consumed in doing so. However, hot swap controllers prove to be the major cost saver during the breakdown of a system by acting as an alternative power supply. Hot swap controllers are effective in preventing damage to the power supply and circuit, and hence save the costs associated with system breakdowns. Costs associated with system repair, technician wages, spare parts and components, personal injury, and other related issues can be prevented by using hot swap controllers. This feature compels OEMs to adopt hot swap controllers in their products.

Further, the report states that the increased miniaturization of semiconductor electronic devices has pressurized power management semiconductor IC manufacturers to reduce the board space while maintaining manufacturing costs. Reducing the board space means that over 30 different high- and low-voltage circuits and analog functions are to be integrated on a single chip. This increases design complexity and cost of manufacturing. With rapid advances in technology and the trend of miniaturization, the size of the circuits and chips are constantly decreasing while the demand for uncompromised performance is increasing. In such a scenario, designing new-age power management ICs becomes a challenge, especially when the cost of manufacturing is desired to be low. This poses a challenge for hot swap controller manufacturers as they have to design a high-performance product, with reduced size, keeping the cost factor in check.
