President's Words

Dear Members,

In the tech front, like a locomotive, semiconductor industry continues to drive and enable innovations across different fields. For examples, flexible-LED technology makes foldable-display smartphones possible. New CMOS image sensor enabled photography under extremely low-light conditions. We can take SLR quality pictures like milky-way galaxy photos using a smartphone. Plus, new Neuro-network processing technology makes AI applications booming. Google’s AlphaFold just announced a breakthrough — Given a DNA sequence, AI can now predict Protein’s 3D structures!

This month CASPA’s volunteers are working hard to bring two upcoming seminars. Our corporate sponsors also posted new jobs. Be sure to check them out if you or anyone you know is looking for a job.

Lastly, for those who want to participate in CASPA board election or high-school junior scholarship, please make sure to join CASPA as a lifetime member before April 19 to be eligible. We will take applications in August and announce election result and scholarship winners in our annual conference and dinner banquet on October 19.

Best Regards,

Danny Hua

President and Chairman, CASPA
