The objective of this CIR’s report is to identify the opportunities for edge processors and related chips and to analyze the impact of edge computing on the chip industry. Included in this analysis are strategic profiles of leading vendors and other influencers in the edge processor. Among the companies profiled are Apple, Dell, Google, Huawei, Intel, Kontron, Microchip Technology, Micron, NVIDIA, Samsung and others. The report also forecasts revenues from chip sales to the edge computing sector from 2021 to 2025.
This report also discusses the key markets for edge processors as an enabler for edge data centers and their role inside edge servers, routers and gateways. It also examines the special features that are required to support latency sensitive applications including autonomous vehicles, the Internet-of-Things and robotics. We also include an account on how edge processors will deal with security issues in a number of different applications.
This report is one of six market studies that CIR is producing in the edge computing space. The other volumes in this series cover edge servers, edge computing software, edge network security, edge computing services and edge chips/processors.
