The global embedded host bridges market size is experiencing a significant growth and will grow considerably in next few years. The "Host Bridge" connects the system to the tree of PCI buses (which are internally connected by PCI-to-PCI Bridges). The processor(s) and memory is usually located on the "opposite" side of the host bridge. Host Bridges (EHB) serve as a vital link between the host processor, system memory, and system input/output (I/O) by operating as a hub. The host bridge is used by both the host processor and the system I/O to access shared system memory. The host bridge is also used by the system controller and host processor to configure and manage system I/O. Military and aerospace applications benefit from a host processor bridge. Host Bridge can automate and orchestrate complete transaction sequences for external applications or RPA bots to invoke with a single request.
COVID-19 Scenario Analysis:
The global lockdown implemented in response to the COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in a financial collapse that has affected Embedded host bridges market growth. The outbreak is causing damage on a broad range of industries and the embedded host bridges industry is no exception. Following the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, businesses were forced to make difficult financial and cost-cutting decisions to ensure the continued flow of goods. The lockdown was the result of the new coronavirus's short-term influence on the manufacturing industry around the world, which resulted in a drop in semiconductor demand. With the price decline, the weak demand has had a domino effect throughout the semiconductor sector. The COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown have resulted in the closure of activities, as well as e-commerce and retail stores, putting supply chains at risk and widening the gap between demand and supply. As government of different provinces have already announced total lockdown and temporarily shutdown of industries, the overall production process being adversely affected; thus, hinder the overall Embedded host bridges market opportunity globally.
Top Impacting Factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis
The major factor driving the embedded host bridge are its growing use in the sectors like military, aerospace and telecommunication. The Modern data centers require technologies that deliver optimum performance while consuming the least amount of energy. While computing and storage devices have native PCIe for internal connectivity, they all communicate to the outside world using different technologies such as Ethernet or InfiniBand. Host Bridges are high-performance, low-latency, low-power devices that are multi-purpose, extremely flexible, and configurable. The host bridge is driving an evolution in the data centers. This is another factor which is going to drive the market during the forecasted period.
The Global Embedded Host Bridges Market Trends are as Follows:
Rapid Growth in Use of Embedded Host Bridges for Military, Aerospace Apps
Host Bridge is dedicated to the aerospace and defense industries and will continue to serve military products in the near future. The host bridge connects PowerPC processors, PCI peripherals, and local memory to enable system connection. The host bridge processor can accommodate two processors connected through the MPX interface and can run at a bus speed of up to 167 MHz (or up to 200 MHz when supporting a single processor). The PC7447A and PC7448 high-reliability microprocessors are well complemented by the host bridge companion chip, which will provide customers with a more optimal design for high-performance applications while lowering overall system costs. A DDR2 memory controller is included in the host bridge, which supports DDR2-400 devices. The high data bandwidth is provided via the 133MHz PCI-X interface and the two Gigabit Ethernet connections. The host bridge provides system designers with improved overall system performance and reduced system design complexity, while giving top system performance-per-watt, thanks to its low active power and integrated functions such as clock generation, DMA, Interrupt Controller, I2C, and UART.
Increase in Demand for Wireless Host Bridges
A bridge connects two networks in computer networking so that they can communicate and function as a single network. As Wi-Fi and other wireless networks grew in popularity, so did the need to connect them to each other and to older wired networks. Internetwork connections are made feasible via bridges. Hardware and network protocol support are both included in this wireless bridging solution. There can be seen a rapid growth in the embedded host bridges market revenue during the forecast period.
