iSuppli’s Teardown Service allows companies to perform a valuable and actionable combination of in-depth and strategic analysis. The information contained within this service allows comparisons to be made between similar devices in a given application group or across multiple applications. Specifically, iSuppli’s spend analysts offer complete analysis, bill of materials (BOM cost), cost model, component pricing and component counts on all devices that are involved in a given teardown.
The device teardowns come from a variety of markets including cellular handsets, smartphones such as the iPhone teardown and Nexus One teardown, Set-Top Boxes, servers, routers, PCs, notebooks, netbooks, Mobile Internet Devices, digital cameras, PDAs and more. iSuppli delivers a complete assessment of all electronic, electro-mechanical and mechanical components as well as the bill of materials (BOM costs), cost model, component pricing and teardown review.
Included in the teardown analysis are photo analysis, summary analysis, component cost tables and graphical representation, and a downloadable bill of materials Excel file. Teardown Tracks—Mobile Handsets, Data Communications & Computers, Personal & Home Electronics, and Tablets & eReaders—provide all devices within that market to the client with the ability to compare across devices and components. For example, the Mobile Handsets Teardown Track gives comparisons of the iPhone teardown and the Nexus One teardown side-by-side.
