LebNet is continuing its podcast series ‘Brothers Talking Tech’ hosted by Greg Akiki - Senior Director of Quality at GLOBALFOUNDRIES - and Fram Akiki, President at Joun Technologies. 

With over 75 years of combined experience in the tech industry, the two brothers are regularly engaging in a 5-minute tech discussion on current technical topics in the news in a fun yet highly informative format. 

In the second episode, they discuss the geo-political aspects of chip manufacturing.

Below are the main points they tackle: 

  • Which countries have been building chips from 1970 to today?
  • What is the most critical step in building chips and how is it transitioning?
  • How important is the ecosystem around semiconductor manufacturing?
  • What are the challenges of building more chips in the U.S.?
