From semiconductors to embedded systems to consumer devices and radio towers, electronics industry technologies span scales from nanometers to kilometers, with rapid innovation at every level. Effectively developing new materials, new processes, and new partners around the globe are not best practices in electronics, they are the minimum required for survival.
