Semiconductor technology has been one of the most significant inventions of the 20th century, with its impact felt in almost every aspect of modern living. Semiconductors are materials that have properties in between those of conductors and insulators, making them ideal for use in electronic circuits. They play a crucial role in the functioning of devices ranging from simple calculators to complex supercomputers, as well as in various other fields.
1/10 Computing and Information Technology
Computing and information technology is perhaps the most well-known field that relies heavily on semiconductor technology. Semiconductors are essential components of electronic devices such as computers, smartphones, and tablets. They are used to store and process data, and also to enable wireless communication through the use of radio frequency (RF) components.
