Hokkaido University and Bsan University (Japan and Korea) Made the chemical reaction process of SrCoOx, the basic material of next-generation memory devices. 10. Touchence (device manufacturer in Japan) Agreed to co-develop finger type touch sensors using MEMS manufacturing processes with Kagawa University. Dominique K. Numakura is the managing director of DKN Research LLC. Contact haverhill@dknreseach. com for further information and news. 5. Tokyo University (Japan) Produced wafers of organic semiconductors by using a simple printing process, which could be a valuable step-up to make organic transis- tors. 6. Sharp (electronics company in Japan) Co-developed a 30" foldable, flexible OLED display with NHK, which can be put in a 4-cm diameter pipe (weight: 100 grams). 7. SK Hynix (semiconductor manufacturer in Korea) Opened an R&D center of C-MOS Sensor devic- es in Hamamatsucho, Tokyo, to catch up with the growing market. 8. AIST (R&D organization in Japan) Improved the resolution of EDS element analy- sis in SEM system more than two orders to de- Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., announced new study findings, forecasting that 5G will generate $13.2 trillion in sales enablement by 2035. The IHS Markit 5GEconomy Study, commissioned by Qualcomm Technologies, shows an increase of $1 trillion in 5G sales enablement by 2035 over the original forecast released in 2017 which estimat- ed $12.3 trillion. IHS Markit correlated this increase in large part due to the early completion of the initial 5G standard and the subsequent accelerated rollout. As noted at the Qual- comm 5G Summit in October, there are now more than 30 live 5G networks and more than 40 OEMs launch- ing 5G-enabled devices, making it the fastest ever rollout of a cellular technology generation. Additional key predictions from the study show: • The global 5G value chain will support 22.3 million jobs in 2035. This is 3.4 times as many jobs as a similar level of economic output supports today • The global 5G value chain will invest an average of $235B annually to continue to expand and strengthen the 5G technology base. This figure represents nearly 80% of the total US federal, state and local government spending on transportation infrastructure in 2017 • The U.S. is forecasted to lead in cellular R&D and capital expenditures in the 5G mobile value chain with 27% average annual investment, followed closely by China at 26% "Like electricity and the steam engine before it, IHS Markit views 5G as a catalyst that will thrust mobile technology into the exclusive realm of General-Purpose Technology," said Bob Flanagan, economics consulting director, IHS Markit.
