Any engineer knows that coding, testing, and designing products requires intense concentration. “Being in the zone” is critical for many engineering tasks as juggling several variables in your head demand laser focus. Engineers in this state of flow— where knowledge, motivation, and focus all magically align— can produce more quality work in a single afternoon than in days of non-flow.
But as most engineers also know, this state of flow is elusive. As soon as you buckle down to do engineering work, intrusions may shift your attention. Before you know it, you’re waist-deep in two or three other unanticipated tasks. In an era of endless Slack messages and open workspaces, we’re bombarded by distractions. In reality, doing real engineering work can seem few and far between when interruptions are pulling you away from complete focus on important projects.
Looking over past year’s stories, it should be clear to anyone that the semiconductor industry encountered big wins and new challenges in 2018. The industry enjoyed consistent revenue growth, new machine learning models tackled creative artificial intelligence (AI) applications, and the Internet of Things continued to profoundly change the way we interact with tech. But with these all new inventions and knowledge, the potential is just starting.
The smell of pine trees, patches of fresh snow, and brightly lit decorations mean the winter holidays are just around the corner. But exciting industry happenings aren’t over yet. As we near the end of 2018, let’s look back at the top events and news to take place in the semiconductor space.
In this article, we’ll give you the latest rundown of industry news and breakthroughs that happened in the fourth quarter of 2018.
