The Oxygen to Innovations

Emmanuel Christi Das, Special EditorIn 1965, Moore's law coined that computing power would continue to double every two years. Clearly, the rate of innovation we are witnessing has sustained the prediction. Some attribute the technology advancements to the cooperative nature of the semiconductor community between industry, academia, research consortia, regulators and government laboratories.

Semiconductor innovation is an important precursor to broader technological innovation, which tends to occur in waves.

Besides, there is a renewed focus on semiconductor R&D that bodes well for the economy at large. Ever
since 2013, the opinion that every company is now a tech company has been an ad infinitum. Nevertheless, this is becoming an accurate statement look at how digital transformation is taking over. In nearly every industry, the giants have suddenly found themselves competing with tech driven disruptors. It fuels sector wide arms races, and semiconductors are today's big winners.

As more companies rely on technology to enhance the production and delivery of goods and services, the importance of semiconductor innovation continues to grow. Should innovation come to a halt, the global economy would inevitably falter. Thankfully, chip makers aren’t slowing down. The chips semiconductor companies are producing today and the software capabilities they have already developed will usher in a new era of tech driven economic growth. Semiconductors are the unsung heroes of technology, providing highspeed processing power for computers, flat screen displays, smartphones, and other electronic devices.

As tech companies continue to look up to chipmakers to provide more comprehensive, integrated offerings, the industry’s biggest players will continue to complement existing capabilities. Here’s an edition dedicated to the chipmakers and design service providers that have helped the tech giants remain a giant.
