For the semiconductor industry, the very technologies that disrupt the way companies operate are the same technologies that will be leveraged to create new products and businesses. It's time for semiconductor companies to take a strong stand and proactively define the next generation of technology--in a dual role, as customer and producer. DARQ technologies will not only change the semiconductor industry, they will also drive business growth. Blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technology will drive improvements via data provenance and faster traceability as well as enablement of compute and Artifical Intelligence(AI) capabilities. AI and extended reality will require custom chips, and quantum computing will bring about a new world of compute engineering.
