The Department of Defense Manufacturing Innovation Institutes (DoD MIIs) and other institutes within the Manufacturing USA network are working to accelerate commercialization of faster, more flexible and more efficient semiconductors in the U.S. They are doing so with integrated photonics, flexible hybrid electronics, and wide bandgap power electronics. This work in next-generation chips is critical for anchoring a semiconductor supply chain in the U.S. and ensuring small- and medium-sized manufacturers remain the foundation of a strong economy and secure nation.
