At Semiconductor Today we believe that quality is everything, and we pride ourselves on our high standards. For this reason, unlike some publications serving the compound semiconductor industry, we do not:

  • Publish unedited material.
  • Publish material that is not relevant to the compound semiconductor industry.
  • Publish news without crediting the source.
  • Publish a brief introduction to a news item on our website and then offer nothing more than a link to an external site for the full news.
  • Publish material on our website that is months out of date.
  • Repeat news items in different sections of our website.
  • Backdate news on our website.
  • Provide magazine content that is not professionally laid-out or placed in useful sections.
  • Target our audience with hundreds of unwanted email each year, or sell/rent our email lists to third parties.

What we do is offer high-quality, timely, and relevant editorial material, making Semiconductor Today the clear first choice for readers and advertisers alike.
