The advancement of technologies such as 5G, VR, and AI has introduced another dimension for companies to compete on. These technologies were non-existent in the consumer market just two decades ago; back then, companies only had to deal with complexity related to customers’ need for customization. Manufacturers are now embracing solutions such as digital twins and virtual simulations to profitably accommodate complexities brought on by these advancements.

I’m your host, Jennifer Piper, and today I’m joined by three guests from Siemens Digital Industries Software. They are, Craig Armenti, Director of Electronics Solutions, Nick Daumann, Senior Marketing Coordinator, and Alan D. Porter, Vice President, Electronics & Semiconductor Industry. They’ll help us understand the current state of the electronics and semiconductors industry.

In this episode, you’ll hear about the trends that are taking place in the industry and how they are impacting electronics design and manufacture. You’ll also hear about the role of mechanical design solutions in electronics design. Lastly, we’ll discuss the impact that digitalization is having on the industry and what we can expect to see from it in the near future.
