Nobunaga Chai, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Friday 30 August 2013]

Taiwan's IC design industry registered growth of 21.5% sequentially and 13% on year in output value in the second quarter of 2013, thanks to growing demand coming from China's smartphone and tablet sectors, according to Digitimes Research.

Taiwan's IC design industry generated combined revenues of NT$115.98 billion (US$3.88 billion) in the second quarter of 2013, said Digitimes Research.
