How Semiconductors are used for 5G

Still a relatively new product, speed, ultra-low latency and reliability means that the revenue potential of 5G is enormous, and demand for smartphones that come equipped with 5G will surge. Not only will this increase opportunities for semiconductor companies to create and supply these chips, but it also means there are further research and development opportunities to continue adapting the product for even better performance both in and outside of smartphones. These include developments in infotainment, fixed wireless access, always-connected tablets and PC and more.

It’s safe to say 5G and semiconductors are critical now and will remain so in the very near future. Browse the component jobs we are currently recruiting for.

Semiconductors and healthcare

From health-tracking wearable devices to blood pressure monitors, pacemakers and next-generation medical devices, semiconductors have seemingly endless applications to health and healthcare. Semiconductors make device development and treatment more specific, reliable and integrative. 

The future of these chips within the healthcare sector may involve assisting the development of devices that are smaller, lower power but with higher-speed detection. Whatever the future, it’s clear that it will not only be exciting but will play an active part in saving lives.
