On board simulation is growing rapidly, and the demand for new energy vehicles is increasing

Analog chip is a bridge connecting the physical real world and the digital world. It mainly refers to the integrated circuit composed of analog circuits such as resistors, capacitors, transistors, etc., which are integrated together to process analog signals in the form of continuous functions (such as sound, light, temperature, etc.).

According to function, analog chips are divided into power management chips (PMIC) and signal link chips. As the first pass for processing external signals, analog chips are widely used in consumer electronics, communications, industrial control, medical, automotive and other downstream terminals.

In terms of subdivided application fields, the automotive electronics field has grown rapidly and has become the second largest downstream application scenario of analog chips. According to Oppenheimer’s statistics, analog circuits account for 29% of automotive chips, of which 53% are signal chain chips and 47% are power management chips.

From the perspective of the average unit value of downstream products, automobiles are also the highest. According to IC Insights data, it is estimated that the global market size of on-board analog chips will reach 13.775 billion US dollars in 2022, with a year-on-year growth of 17%, which will become the fastest growing direction in all downstream application fields of analog chips. New energy vehicles have new demands for analog chips in charging pile, battery management, on-board charging, power system and other aspects, driving the demand for on-board analog chips to further increase.
