Realistically there is no one factor that weighs over another factor when it comes to purchasing. It is a collective issue that ties together, that leads from one factor to another. In the case of purchasing semiconductors, the buyer needs to do an in-depth research for the best possible timing to purchase the materials/components for the best price for development of products.
Functional Factor for Semiconductors
Semiconductors are the brains of modern age electronics, enabling technologies critical economic growth, national security, and global competitiveness.
Semiconductors advances leaps and bounds in communications, clean energy, health care, military systems, transportation, computing, and many other applications.
With upcoming types of technologies that brings impact on society, including virtual reality, the Internet of Things, energy-efficient sensing, brain-inspired computing, automated devices, robotics, and artificial intelligence. Semiconductors’ greatest potential lies ahead.
