Present Everywhere, Always Evolving

Semiconductors are pervasive in modern society. They enable advances in computing, transportation, energy, health care, communications, defense, artificial intelligence and quantum computing, among other vital applications. Semiconductor materials are key to fulfilling the world’s insatiable demand for smaller, faster, lower-cost and higher-performance solutions in both consumer and commercial markets.

The semiconductor industry itself has been a beacon of innovation from its inception. Rapid technological developments within the sector have resulted in exponentially more advanced and more affordable products that help define the way we live, work and play. Without semiconductors, 21st-century life would undoubtedly look very, very different.
