Microelectronics Commons Call for Topics

Call for Topics


Project Background

Microelectronics Commons is a CHIPS and Science Act-funded national network for onshore, microelectronics hardware focused prototyping, lab-to-fab transition of semiconductor technologies and semiconductor workforce training. In 2023, the Department of Defense (DoD) established the Microelectronics Commons – a network of eight regional hubs to evolve laboratory prototypes to fabrication prototypes (lab-to-fab) and to strengthen the semiconductor workforce. This Call for Topics (CFT) describes the desired technical ideas for which project proposals are being sought.
