IPC Applauds White House’s Microelectronics Strategy

In March, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) unveiled a strategy aimed at catalyzing microelectronics innovation in the United States. Aligned with the bipartisan CHIPS Act, the National Strategy on Microelectronics Research sets forth ambitious objectives for the coming five years. IPC was pleased to see advanced packaging, test, and assembly mentioned, and the emphasis on fostering a supportive ecosystem including materials, substrates, and interconnect technology was on target. IPC’s 2021 report on advanced packaging was also cited as a guiding reference. You can be sure IPC will refer to this strategy often as our advocacy continues, emphasizing a “silicon-to-systems” approach. IPC Contact:  Rich Cappetto
