To understand today’s investment potential, I have a visual aid that you can access right now.
In fact, it’s on your hand.
Take a moment and look at one of your thumbnails. Even if you have a large one, it’s probably less than one square inch.
Now, imagine putting 1,000 tiny electronic objects on it.
Seems like it would be pretty difficult to get all of those on there, right?
Now, imagine millions of tiny electronic objects are sitting on your fingernail.
Looking at your hand, that probably seems downright impossible.
And yet, it is possible – along with so much more – thanks to the advancements in semiconductors.
IBM, in partnership with Globalfoundries and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., announced in April that it is developing a 5-nanometer chip that could squeeze 30 billion transistors into a semiconductor the size of your fingernail.
These advancements will play a role in everything from connecting people to the Internet of Things (IoT) to increasing smartphone battery life up to three times to improving the longevity of your other tech devices.
This is big business, with the semiconductor market worth $430 billion.
Of course, as you can imagine, getting all of those tiny transistors to work is tricky stuff.
Today, I’m going to show you a leader in electronic design automation (EDA), which is essential to the design of semiconductor chips and making sure they work properly.
This aggressive firm can handle the core development work for chips, printed circuit boards, and all related hardware systems.
