Integrated Circuits and Systems (ICS)
The worth of integrated circuits and systems cannot be overstated, as they are the foundation of modern electronics and have transformed the world we live in today. They enable us to build smaller, faster, and more efficient electronic devices, and make it possible to create complex systems that power everything from transportation to communication. Without integrated circuits and systems, our modern way of life would not be possible, and their continued advancement will shape the future of technology and society for generations to come.
The global semiconductor market has grown exponentially over the past few decades and is currently valued at around $600 billion USD, and is expected to continue growing at a steady pace in the coming years. The demand for semiconductors-based integrated circuits is being driven by a variety of factors, including the growing adoption of electronic devices, the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), and the increasing use of automation and artificial intelligence in various industries. These trends are leading to a massive increase in the number of connected devices and systems, which in turn is driving the demand for semiconductors and integrated circuits.
