Always Be Curious🔎

April 26 · Issue #18 · View online
Always Be Curious is your weekly shot of sci-tech coverage. Bringing you the now, the how and the wow of science and technology with a special focus on the chip industry.

I’ve worked in the chip industry for over a decade now. And since my very first day, I’ve been impressed with the levels of creativity and commitment of the scientists and engineers that keep this global industry going. A new machine. A smarter process. A different material. A new transistor. In this week’s edition of ABC, the articles in the chips section are living proof of that relentless search for the new, the better, the faster. ⚡️🧠 Enjoy!
Have a good week, stay safe and sound,
