The semiconductor industry has never been more exciting than today, and that is a mouthful given what we have accomplished over the last 50 years, from mainframe computers to a supercomputer in our pockets or on our wrists. Even if you don’t believe in miracles, semiconductor technology comes close.
Semiconductors are critical to modern life. Not just critical, semiconductors could mean the difference between life and death.
Because our world is nothing without electronic devices, imagine a business or hospital without digital equipment. Imagine a military without high tech gear. Are you getting the picture? Life or death.
Now understand that semiconductors are where modern electronics begin and end, for that matter. Also, know that the semiconductor chip may have been invented in the United States, but today it is a worldwide supply chain.
Because Taiwan is the home of TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Corporation), the worldwide champion of semiconductor manufacturing and hundreds of companies worldwide brought us to where we are today, and nothing short of a war can stop the semiconductor ecosystem from succeeding.
Could it even be possible? China at war with the US through Taiwan? in my opinion, war is probable. Unless, of course, the world recognizes semiconductors as a matter of life or death and gets civilized around it.
