AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ABI Research announces the opening of its new research and teardown facility in Austin. Austin’s well established companies like Freescale Semiconductor and Dell as well as innovative startups like Black Sand Technologies make it a natural choice for the new location. This expansion allows ABI Research to capitalize on the opportunity to be in the center of a technology hub.
The device teardown business has been one of ABI Research’s fastest growing segments in the past 18 months and ABI sees the trajectory continuing. With a growing emphasis in the market on patents & IP and the rapid rate at which semiconductor technology continues to innovate, their growing client base is driving them to reinvest in teardown operations.
“The market intelligence business has changed radically in just the past four years,” said Tim Archdeacon, ABI Research founder and president, “technical prowess and heavy quant have always been the mainstay for us but it is double-down time. There will always be a need for news and opinion but the core market analyst of the future is much more programmer than journalist. Our highly technical teardown operation, headed by vp engineering Jim Mielke, is at the forefront of innovation in technology market intelligence.”
Stuart Carlaw, Chief Research Officer, went on to add that, “Our deep understanding of the core semiconductor building blocks of mobile markets provides ABI Research with a key differentiator over our closest competition. It gives us an unparalleled foundation upon which to base our quantitative analysis.”
ABI Research provides in-depth analysis and quantitative forecasting of trends in global connectivity and other emerging technologies. From offices in North America, Europe and Asia, ABI Research’s worldwide team of experts advises thousands of decision makers through 70+ research and advisory services. Est. 1990.
