Semiconductor technologies

The semiconductor industry is driven by a constant race to produce smaller, faster and cheaper chips for use in a multitude of devices such as computers, smartphones, smart appliances and gaming hardware. What’s more, the exceptional growth experienced by AI is driving a new wave of semiconductors better suited to supporting AI.

Data centres, consumer electronics and the automotive industry’s demand for increased processing capacity, speed and reduced power consumption call for developments in semiconductor design and fabrication technology, driving revenue in this sector, with significant innovation in AI technology often being spearheaded by smaller firms.
