3 reasons we're really excited about flex sensors

There seems to be a preconceived notion out there that you can be either pretty good at many things or extremely proficient at one. You may recognize the popular title given to one who embodies this belief: “Jack of all trades, master of none.” The only way to achieve true proficiency, according to this reasoning, is to devote enough time and energy to something that it’s impossible to achieve that same level of proficiency anywhere else.

How a simple liquid changed the world

arc.pngIt may not look like much, but those little bottles contain one of the most important technological advances of the last 30 years. The 1970s brought an impressive wave of innovation in the United States. In particular, personal computers and electronics began to take root as a mainstay in the home and office.

By the end of the '70s, however, the semiconductor industry had hit a brick wall. As innovation pushed the envelope, current photolithography equipment wasn’t able to keep up. Manufacturers could not make integrated circuit (IC) features smaller than one micron, and no solution seemed evident.

Wafer-Level Packaging and the Mobile Revolution

Back in September and this past March, Apple held its biannual Special Events. These events are meant to introduce new products and features, and they happen quite regularly. These two recent events, however, seemed to leave something out: computers.
