The U.S. CHIPS Act and the European Chips Act established governmental measures on two continents to alleviate the manufacturing dilemma birthed by the semiconductor shortage. Two organizations, one from North American and the other from Europe, have taken steps to join forces in a cohesive effort to bolster the availability of microelectronics in the western hemisphere.
This step marks a significant milestone in the international cooperation between the two institutions, which are focused on promoting innovation and progress in the fields of digital technologies, energy technologies and microelectronics.
"With our expertise and technologies in advanced microelectronics, we ideally complement the capabilities of NY CREATES,” explained Weinreich. “Together, we can make significant progress in the development of future semiconductor systems."
NY CREATES representatives visited the Fraunhofer Institute in Dresden and the Silicon Saxony office where Fraunhofer IPMS and NY CREATES had agreed on concrete dates for a joint exchange in 2024.
