What are the benefits of a digital magazine?

Digital magazines offer a sophisticated range of advertising options, such as audio/video content, which can be used to create greater impact. All websites cited within the magazine are hyperlinks, enabling the reader to respond to advertising instantly.

Rapid delivery

Printed magazines take several weeks to produce and deliver, especially to inaccessible countries. The result is outdated content. However, digital magazines can be produced quickly and delivered instantly, even to geographical regions that cannot be served efficiently with printed mail. Typically, readers receive Semiconductor Today within 2 days of it being completed. All this is an obvious advantage to the reader, as well as to the advertiser.

Unlimited distribution

Print publishers limit the number of copies of each issue they distribute to keep their costs low. However, digital magazines are inexpensive to distribute, regardless of reader volumes, allowing you to reach every decision maker and everyone with purchasing influence within your target markets. Digital magazines also enable greater pass-on readership.

Cost effective

Digital magazines are inexpensive to publish; there are no print and postage charges, so Semiconductor Today can pass the production savings onto its advertisers.

And it is environmentally friendly, too!

What does Semiconductor Today cover?

Semiconductor Today’s editorial coverage includes: III-V materials such as GaAs, InP, and GaN; II-VI materials such as CdHgTe and ZnSe; and IV-IV materials such as SiC and SiGe, as well as advanced silicon technology such as strained silicon and silicon-on-insulator (SOI). Applications include wireless communications, fiber-optic communications, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and solar cells. Close attention will be given to areas where the compound and advanced silicon industries converge.
