However, in addition to laws, there are rules, of which, as you know, there are exceptions. To make life easier in the manufacture of technical products, people also came up with standards – rules that apply only to manufacturers. Continue reading

Intel forecasts (optimistic)

To solve the problem of reducing the size of transistors and conductive tracks, Intel created a whole working group called Technology & Manufacturing Group (TMG), which has about 4,000 employees.

This unit improves the manufacturing process, making it more and more “thin”, and also conducts enormous research on materials that can be used as conductors and conductive elements. Continue reading
