From apps and devices to network infrastructure, all paths in tech ultimately lead back to the semiconductor. These silicon systems are the fundamental building blocks – the true enablers – of our digital worlds.
While the sector has been established for decades, semiconductors are still instigating and sustaining new directions in technology. Today, with Moore’s Law pushing at its limits and transistors scaling into the single-nanometre range, processing power and silicon economics continue on at a relentless pace. However, physical limitations to Moore’s Law lie ahead and the economics of what’s possible continue to shift. Doors to almost unthinkable potential in areas such as artificial intelligence and quantum computing are opening and dramatically altering the direction of the industry.
