Well, Japanese domestic market stuff? Panasonic and Toshiba take pride in sourcing almost all, but ram and chipset from Japan for their notebooks.

I once had an opportunity to take apart an RZ series, and to my amusement, even capacitors and other passives were Japanese. I never expected Japanese electronics to still be around in 2018.

Good point. Other notable companies are Sony, they still have CMOS sensor factories in Japan and will try to keep most of the “secret sauce” in the country, and Samsung who also has founderies in Korea if I’m not mistaken.

Even them will source some of the parts from elsewhere, hut at least they still have advanced manufaturing knowledge. I guess they would be faster to move if they needed to cut ties with China.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
