Reducing the Barrier to Silicon
(still in stealth)

Creating an open source modular build system for hardware ("make for silicon"). Process scaling is coming to an end and it is a social imperative that we find a new path to extend the Moore's Law exponential. The most viable option is extreme silicon specialization, which will require fast automated translation from program to silicon.


Partnering with Microsoft, Intel, GlobalFoundries, Cadence, Synopsys, Ansys, and Siemens to bring state-of-the-art microelectronic design and manufacturing to national security applications.


The American Semiconductor Academy (ASA) Initiative is partnering with SEMI to build a comprehensive workforce development program designed to close the microelectronics industry's widening talent gap and maintain U.S. economic competitiveness and national security.


Collaborating with leading US businesses, universities and national labs to ensure continued U.S. semiconductor innovation leadership.
