Goudsmit Magnetics becomes multiphysical
For over 60 years, it has been all magnets at Goudsmit Magnetics. The family business from Waalre develops and produces all kinds of solutions and applications based on magnetism. However, more and more other physical properties come into play. For their multiphysical modeling and calculations, the engineers now rely heavily on tooling from Comsol.
China won’t escalate in tech war with US
China has always shown restraint in trade conflicts, carefully avoiding escalation and domestic economic harm. So too will it try to seek a truce in the current tech war with the US while pursuing other means to continue its ascent as a global superpower.
ASIC design in a reliable supply chain
Over the last few decades, driven by lower costs and higher volumes, there was a strong inclination to move the semiconductor supply chain to the Far East. Gradually, development and also R&D followed suit. Since 2019, the geopolitical winds have turned dramatically, and the importance of an independent semiconductor supply chain in the West is being acknowledged. How is a company like Bruco IC doing ASIC development in the Netherlands?

High Tech Systems Center still alive and kicking
The High Tech Systems Center has been part of the Eindhoven AI institute EAISI for two years now. The mechatronics center sometimes seems to have been blown away by the AI storm, but the research themes surrounding high-tech systems go much further than just artificial intelligence. There are voices in favor of giving HTSC more of its own identity again.
Why the Dutch innovation machine stalls too easily
Innovation is like making a sand pile: keep adding sand until you get an avalanche. The Dutch culture is good at making avalanches, writes Carel van der Poel, but not so much at making the most of them.
