Greeting from Chapter Chair:
Greetings to all EPS M’sia members. Time flies, we are approaching the end of Y2020, with many new methods of living and working; basically establishing new norms in this pandemic Y2020. This newsletter also marks our planning on the forthcoming new year!
While World Health Organization (WHO) and all our government agencies reminding us on the important of avoiding the 3Cs (crowded places, close contacts and confined spaces), the semiconductor leaders feel that COVID-19 will have a positive impact on the investment and growth in the industry that all of us are working on. This great opportunity lies ahead of us with more adoption of 5G, greater usage of artificial intelligence, and Internet of Things (IoT) as it will result in increased investment in the state-of-the-art technology computing power to enable the industry 4.0 Initiative. This indeed a very good sign for all of us to continue to have engineers capable of handling this development while learning to adapt further to these new norms of life challenges.
