Intel joins group to accelerate US semiconductor research
There has never been a more important time to come together as an industry to set the course for advancing the foundation of innovation that will help solve the nation’s greatest challenges – Ann Kelleher , GM of Technology Development at Intel.
Intel Corp., which has operations in New Mexico in the Rio Rancho area, has partnered with other companies to “nurture advanced manufacturing in the United States.”
The collaboration also aims to foster global competition in the semiconductor industry, the company said in a press release.
Other partners include Micron, Analog Devices and MITER Engenuity.
“The collaboration establishes a semiconductor alliance to build a stronger U.S. semiconductor industry, to foster advanced manufacturing in the U.S., and to protect intellectual property in the face of increased global competition. The alliance will provide the foundation for a pan-national approach to a more innovation-driven U.S. semiconductor industry and supply chain,” Intel said in the press release.
The semiconductor alliance, led by MITER Engenuity, was developed from working groups in 2021. Its principles were published in a white paper on American Innovation for American Growth summarizing the call for alliance action for a fair and objective National Semiconductor Technology Center.
Leading U.S. semiconductor manufacturers – Intel, Micron and Analog Devices – and MITER Engenuity are seeking engagement from the semiconductor alliance task force, industry and experts from all facets of the semiconductor industry. US semiconductor ecosystem, including embedded device manufacturers; fabless chip companies; infrastructure, design and manufacturing tool providers; and technology innovators from industry and academia.
“The semiconductor industry in the United States is at an inflection point. There has never been a more important time to come together as an industry to set the course for advancing the foundation of innovation that will help solve the nation’s greatest challenges,” said said Ann Kelleher, executive vice president and general manager of technology development at Intel. .
“The Semiconductor Alliance is an open collaboration that will leverage current and future R&D investments from industry and government across the United States and support the spirit of the CHIPS for America Act to restore American industry leadership. .”
