What is behind "Made in Taiwan" Press Tour Dedicated to 44th TAITRONICS 2018 International Electronics Show Part 1
Separated by strait, united by problems. Some aspects of microelectronics development in China and Taiwan The People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of China (Taiwan) relied on the development of microelectronics with a slight difference in time and achieved impressive results. There is much in common between the PRC and Taiwan but differences remain due to the size of economies, the population size, the availability of natural resources and traditions.
Why does Apple slow down old iPhones? The article considers the reasons why Apple eventually reduces the processor speed of older models of iPhone smartphone. It is noted that Apple’s solution is not a cunning marketing scheme. The company’s specialists do what they have to do to ensure the fault-tolerance of their customers’ devices.
