Q: Welcome, gentlemen! To begin with, can you share what industry trends you are seeing?
2018 was a great year for a number of market segments, with strengths in 5G, AI, high-performance computing, and automotive. We expect them to be key industry drivers in 2019.
I agree. Last year we saw growth in semiconductor innovation with strong momentum into 2019. There was tremendous growth in the AI/ML sector. Growth of 5G and AR/VR in gaming and industrial sectors is creating interesting new opportunities. And autonomous technologies, for example, are driving the need for higher reliability. Of course, there are also other traditional sectors, too, like mobile, data center, and high-performance computing.
