5G Networks and Semiconductor Manufacturing
5G, the fifth generation technology for cellular networks, has made news around the world as a game changer for download speeds and bandwidth. Many experts believe not only will it allow cellular users to reach download speeds of 10 Gbit/s, but could even replace internet service providers for mobile computing due to their high speeds and accessibility.
At the heart of 5G production is the semiconductor industry. For nearly half a century, the production of microchips has provided cutting edge technology for every decade since at least the 1970s. Technological innovation is advancing at a breakneck speed, and microchip manufacturing has, and likely will continue to be at the forefront of futuristic technology.
