For years, semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S. remained stable. But now chip capacity growth in other regions has started to outperform American output. More semiconductors are now manufactured in Asia than anywhere else, and China is on track to become the largest semiconductor manufacturing location in the world.
In 1890, the first successful electric vehicle (EV) was created. While it was nothing more than an electrified wagon, the ingenuity of EVs sparked real interest in the possibilities of mass electric mobility.
Today, about 7.2 million electric vehicles are on the world’s roads. Thanks to technological advancements, electric vehicles are far more efficient, safe, and accessible to consumers than they were even a decade ago— and for good reason. EVs have the potential to revolutionize energy efficiency, economic growth, and environmental safety. Semiconductors have a big role to play in keeping the electric vehicle revolution on track.
Working as a project manager for an engineering team can feel a lot like being thrown into organized chaos. Technology evolves fast, customer demands are nonstop, and industry competition escalates every day. As a result, project definitions change— yet deadlines remain fixed. This stubborn unpredictability makes project management a hard job to get right.
