New Report Identifies Target Areas for CHIPS R&D Investments



SIA-BCG study calls for new federal funds to be directed at five key areas of semiconductor R&D

WASHINGTON, Oct. 27, 2022 — Following landmark enactment in August 2022 of the CHIPS and Science Act to reinvigorate domestic semiconductor manufacturing and research, the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) and the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) today released a report identifying five key areas of the semiconductor R&D ecosystem that should be strengthened by the new law’s R&D funding.

The report, titled “American Semiconductor Research: Leadership Through Innovation,” highlights the importance of government-industry collaboration on two historic new entities—the National Semiconductor Technology Center (NSTC) and the National Advanced Packaging Manufacturing Program (NAPMP)—created by the CHIPS and Science Act. The study also calls for CHIPS funding to be used to bridge key gaps in the current semiconductor R&D ecosystem. Doing so will help pave the way for sustained U.S. chip innovation leadership, according to the report.
