Systems design comes from Northern Europe
New applications come from America
Process technology comes from Belgium
Design toolsets come from America
Fabbed wafers come from Taiwan
Processors come from Intel
Sensors come from Italy
Manufactured goods come from China and Korea
Marketing comes from America.”Tags: belgium, italy, marketing, processors, wafers
