Will leverage next generation technologies, spur workforce development, seed small businesses
NHanced Semiconductors announces a new office in the Westgate Technology Park in Oden, Indiana, adjacent to the Naval Surface Warfare Center – Crane Division. The site will focus on “Foundry 2.0” – a new manufacturing model for custom integrated circuits.
Foundry 2.0 extends Moore’s Law with 3D integration, advanced packaging, and chiplets instead of relying on ever-smaller transistors. Its system level solutions minimize costs and risks while offering superior performance. NHanced President Bob Patti says: “Foundry 2.0 can reduce development costs for leading edge chips by up to 3 orders of magnitude.”
NHanced plans a phased effort at Westgate. The company is working with various US Government entities, the State of Indiana and its educational institutions, and US-based semiconductor manufacturers. The endeavor has several goals:
- create a knowledge-based semiconductor nexus in Indiana
- directly address the US government’s unique semiconductor needs
- bring split-fab wafer finishing and advanced packaging to the Westgate complex
- foster innovation in platform technologies and chiplets
- drive workforce development and promote small high-tech business
