The chip shortage has been a serious headwind to many tech companies, but what has it been like for the chip makers themselves?

This week we speak with Eli Assoolin, Co-founder CEO and Chairman of Newsight Imaging.

Newsight announced a $380 million dollar combination with Vision Sensing Acquisition Corp. in August of last year.

It provides the critical semiconductor components for lidar sets as well as industrial quality control and medical imaging equipment.

Eli discusses how the company’s diverse use cases and position as a chip supplier make it a unique play in the market as compared to its hardware-making customers.

And, why Israeli tech companies like his are increasingly turning to SPACs as a major source of funding.

Give it a listen.
