MITRE ENGENUITY PRESENTS

CIRCUIT TALK

U.S. Leadership in Semiconductors:

How do we protect our modern digital economy?


The U.S. economy's strength is its ability to drive world-changing innovation. Recent shortages in the semiconductor market have created serious repercussions globally and exposed supply chain risk. The future of the semiconductor industry can only be secured when technology change makers are empowered, connected and innovate at scale. This is why MITRE Engenuity is bringing together key thought leaders to reimagine the semiconductor ecosystem and drive generational change.

Welcome to Circuit Talk, a speaker series that creates an open dialogue around these complex technology issues, framed against the backdrop of public policy and public good. 


Throughout the series, MITRE Engenuity will convene perspectives from government, industry and academia to explore current challenges and create strength-based solutions. It is through this collaboration that the U.S. can accelerate industry innovation and reignite our global semiconductor leadership.

EPISODE ONE

"The US Semiconductor Industry"

What do physics and translational R&D have to do with the future of the supply chain?

Guest: Dr. Edlyn Levine

Chief Technologist at MITRE Accelerator

Summary: As dictated by the physics underlying semiconductors and the scientific challenges of creating smaller and smaller chips, we are reaching the physical limits of what is possible. In this episode, Dr. Edlyn Levine discusses the direct impact of physics on the complexities of the semiconductor ecosystem and highlights the importance of prioritizing translational Research & Development (R&D) when considering U.S. government funding.
