Taiwan to invest $ 300 million in educational institutions that train specialists for the semiconductor and microelectronics industries

Over the next decade, Taiwan’s leadership and major chipmakers intend to invest at least $ 300 million in advanced training programs for the semiconductor industry, seeking to protect the local economy as the United States and China seek to stimulate their own production and build their own workforce.

TSMC, the world’s largest chip maker, and its Taiwanese partners such as MediaTek and Powerchip Semiconductor Manufacturing, have told Nikkei Asia that they will support the campaign to create additional institutions of higher education. Talented employees are key to maintaining the competitiveness of the microelectronics industry, a sector directly linked to national security, they said.

The government’s plan was in response to large companies seeking government assistance to tackle the shortage of skilled workers around May last year. This was reported to Nikkei Asia by an informant with direct knowledge of the matter.

“More than a dozen companies involved in the production of microcircuits – from design and production to packaging and testing – have actively participated in the discussion of such schools, as they anticipate that the demand for highly qualified specialists in this area in the coming years will be even higher; this is an inevitable problem that needs to be solved in the near future, ”he said.

The law simplifies the creation of a training structure, in particular, allows universities to create graduate schools that can operate independently and attract funding from leading technology groups and the National Development Fund, the main funding mechanism for vital areas of Taiwan’s economy.

The law states that the new structures “cannot work with Chinese companies or receive funding from Chinese organizations.” They should also monitor how graduates get jobs after graduation and “should guide them to prioritize careers in Taiwan.”

The novelty supports a 16-pin 12VHPWR power connector, which can transfer up to 600W of power. At the same time, it is claimed that the block is very reliable and provides higher efficiency compared to blocks of the ATX 2.0 standard.

Note that other power supplies do not yet fully support ATX 3.0, so they require a special adapter. It allows you to combine multiple regular 8-pin PCIe power cables into one. The MSI MEG Ai1300P does not have this problem; along with 8-pin PCIe connectors, it has a 12+4 PCIe 5.0 12VHPWR connector.

LG Unveils Huge 97 inch OLED Screen That Delivers 51 Sound

LG today unveiled a huge 97-inch OLED panel and called it its largest OLED screen ever – even though LG already has an OLED TV with that size. What is the peculiarity of the novelty? In the application of Cinematic Sound OLED (CSO) technology. Here the screen acts as a membrane: vibrating over all surfaces (and it is considerable here), sound is created. The creators assure that the sound corresponds to the 5.1 format – and no usual speakers are needed.

In fact, CSO technology is not new – it was used in the LG G8 smartphone. True, that model failed just in sound tests – DxOMark experts noted the absence of low frequencies and numerous artifacts. But, probably, in a few years, LG was able to refine the technology, and now the sound output is much better in quality. In addition, the screen sizes of a smartphone and TV are incomparable.

The new panel uses OLED EX technology, as in the latest flagship LG TVs, so the picture on the screen should be bright and saturated. A commercial TV based on the new 97-inch panel is expected this year, with an estimated price of $25,000.
