ECIA Posts New Channel Channel Episode: TTI’s Michael Knight

Atlanta – ECIA President and CEO David Loftus interviewed Michael Knight, President of TTI Semiconductor Group, for the latest episode of The Channel Channel podcast. As the industry’s Renaissance Man, Michael always brings a fresh perspective to the conversation, and this interview is no exception. The two discuss their fascinating hobbies, how technology is the silver lining to the pandemic crisis, what consolidation among electronic component manufacturers means to the channel, the importance of giving back to the industry by staying active in associations like ECIA, and much more.

“Discussing the components channel with Michael Knight is a pleasure, because he truly loves this industry and has given so much to it over the years with his association work,” observed Loftus. “I recommend taking the time to listen to this recording, and you will come away inspired, with renewed enthusiasm for the future of our industry, and the people who work in it.”

“Technology is exponential,” Knight explains in the podcast. “The first piece of an exponential curve looks pretty flat, but the second half takes off like a rocket. I think in the 2020s we are entering the second half with 5G and space exploration – there’s so much going on that’s technology enabled. It is changing everything. And it means an explosion of demand for electronic components.”
