SIA Webinar American Semiconductor Research: Leadership Through Innovation
Join us Thursday, Nov. 10 at 2 pm ET for the complimentary SIA Webinar - American Semiconductor Research: Leadership Through Innovation. Following the 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) released a report titled American Semiconductor Research: Leadership Through Innovation identifying five key areas of the semiconductor R&D ecosystem that should be strengthened by the new law’s R&D funding. The report 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.
Opening remarks and a report overview will be given by Eric Breckenfeld, Director of Technology Policy at the Semiconductor Industry Association. Industry speakers will give brief overviews of their companies’ R&D priorities and visions for the CHIPS act. These speakers will include Gilroy Vandentop, Director of Corporate University Research at Intel; David H. Robertson, Senior Technology Director – Automotive, Communications and Aerospace at Analog Devices; Dr. Raja Swaminathan, CVP, Advanced Packaging at AMD; Steve Pawlowski, VP Advanced Computing Solutions at Micron; and Dr. Vijay Narayanan, IBM Fellow and Strategist for the Physics of AI.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 2 pm for the complimentary webinar!
