Every industry has its own stressful work environments, but working as a semiconductor professional comes with a unique set of stressors and challenges. While it can be tempting to work with an iron willpower despite the pressure, this can lead to burnout and low productivity. It's critical to stay cool during your day-to-day operations.
As summer winds down and we welcome fall, it’s time to look back at the last few months in semiconductor industry news. In this issue, we’ll look at mid-year semiconductor sales numbers, the bill to end the employment-based visa process, MIT’s battery-free sensor, and Samsung’s newest 5G technology.
Often, we go about our day relatively unaware of the dust and microbes settling in our living and working spaces. However, this should never be the case for cleanrooms, which are highly sensitive workplaces for many electronics industry. Many manufacturing processes done in cleanrooms require strict environmental conditions to safeguard against contamination. And with careful cleanliness, scientists, engineers and cleanroom occupants can control its maintenance, energy cost, and productivity.
