@ismini.scouras: I hope you can do a follow up on Microsemi's implantable medical device packaging technology. Has this already obtained FDA approval? MP Divakar

Just because budget cuts happen doesn't mean that the electronics component portions will be cut. In fact, I would expect the automation will be used to improve efficiency and cost effectiveness in a variety of areas. More drones means more electronics. More surveillance means more electronics. We can do away with a few $B projects and invest a fraction of that in increased efficiency thru 'smart' electronics programs...

I’m sure if the opportunity was there, Microsemi would go after it. But in the meantime, the company continues to penetrate other markets. For instance, just today, it introduced a die packaging technology targeted at implantable medical devices.

Why not Microsemi is looking for the space projects of other countries, there are many countries are planning to land on Mars, the proven technology will help them getting faster and reliable results, yes US laws and NASA agreements should allow doing them so.

Always a great idea to diversify. The budget cut for DoD has to happen to keep the US solvent. Industry has to move to the markets that will sustain them.

It seems Microsemi is having a very healthy growth an its product portfolio is defined right to achieve its goal.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
