Week In Review: Semiconductor Manufacturing, Test


Dutch tech industry group FME called for the European Commission to draft a position on whether and how to restrict computer chip technology exports to China, saying "more unified and powerful action" was needed from Europe, according to Reuters. Meanwhile, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said he saw gradual progress in talks with the U.S. over potential new restrictions on exporting chip-makin... » read more

Manufacturing Bits: April 3


World's brightest accelerator Japan’s High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) is readying what is considered the world’s most luminous or brightest particle accelerator. The system, dubbed the SuperKEKB, combines an electron-positron collider with a new and advanced detector. The storage ring system is designed to explore and measure rare decays of elementary particles, such... » read more
