Dear Readers,

Production stops, supply difficulties, price increases – the semiconductor shortage highlighted the importance of the microelectronics industry. Saxony is also continuing to work on ending the shortage – with excellent research, new materials, forward-looking technologies and fully automated factories. Our booklet provides an overview of all relevant topics related to microelectronics. It also offers the possibility of obtaining in-depth information online.

Look forward to exciting details on chip production, application areas, future-proof jobs and the immensely important promotion of the industry. You will be amazed at the importance of microelectronics in your life as well.

Enjoy the reading.
