Their performance is often tied to that of the big electronics companies you know of, and some of the semiconductor companies are massive ones, vital to the tech hardware and software ecosystem.

But what, just what, is a semiconductor?

It's a chip.

It's a chip that goes into a device or a data center and a few other things.

That's it.
