The Chip War – FT’s Business Book of Year

Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology won the Financial Times’ business book of the year award.

A highly engaging read by economic historian Chris Miller, a professor at Tufts, who recounts the story of the ongoing battle for semiconductor supremacy.

As the FT says, it also provides a good explanation for why the semiconductor supply chain is the world’s most vulnerable supply chain.

“We rarely think about chips,” writes Mr. Miller, “yet they’ve created the modern world. The fate of nations has turned on their ability to harness computer power.”

As just one example of the criticality of semiconductors, China spends more money on importing semiconductors than oil.

“Fabricating and miniaturizing semiconductors has been the greatest engineering challenge of our time,” Professor Miller asserts.

To avoid electronics supply-chain disruptions, you may also wish to consult an expert in electronics component supply. With more than three decades of supply-chain expertise, Astute Electronics is ideally placed to work with you on your daily component requirements.
