Global Technology – June 2017

Let’s focus on this month’s most important advances in technology.

In 2016, annual global semiconductor sales reached $339 billion worldwide.  In that same year, the semiconductor industry spent about $7.2 billion worldwide on wafers that serve as the substrates for microelectronics components.  These ultimately turned into quintillions of transistors, light-emitting diodes, and other electronic and photonic devices.

Going forward, a new technique developed by MIT engineers may vastly reduce the overall cost of wafer technology .....
