Invest Northern Ireland. A lightly-technical presentation on the nature of Electronic Systems and the Business Opportunities that exist within them.


<ul><li>1.1 Title: Technology Trends Electronic Systems Abstract The practical application of a couple of centuries of scientific study has brought huge advances to almost everything we value; but none more so than those touched by Electronic Systems whose power to transform and animate is truly phenomenal. Surely with such powerful magic at our fingertips anything is within our power: Mend climates, solve energy problems and cure society's ills?! Alas; our tricks are not magic, but the results of painstaking global endeavour, of immense scale, detail and precision. And whilst these technologies are evolving at a prodigious rate; they are only capable of achieving so-much at any given time. ... The consumers insatiable appetite spurs us endlessly on. Perceive the reality of Electronic Systems and we can capitalising the many and varied, business and economic opportunities they present ... as they deliver our 21st century.
