According to research firm InStat, the mobile market is set for high growth in the CPU industry. The research firm says that most mobile devices today still use MCUs and ASICs, but the increased functionality of the mobile devices like smartphone, MIDs, and other products are starting to need the power of a mobile processor.

The use of a mobile CPU creates products that have higher performance and cost less for the OEMs to produce says InStat. By 2013, the market for mobile processors in mobile devices is set to grow to 775 million units.

“Integration will be a key trend for future devices with multiple cores, graphics/multimedia acceleration, and I/O all continuing to be integrated into the processor,” says Jim McGregor, In-Stat analyst. “Likewise, baseband functionality will also be integrated into mobile processors for all applications except PCs, which are less reliant on the connectivity and smaller device footprint.”
