You’re invited to the fifth annual ASU Congressional Conference 2021: Growing Arizona’s Technology Future, August 20

Posted by on Jul 13, 2021 in Events, Features |

While Arizona’s economy historically is known for its five C’s — copper, cattle, cotton, citrus and climate — a sixth ‘C’ has been a lesser-known contributor for some time.

Chips, as in microchips, can trace their roots to Arizona’s economic landscape starting in 1949, when Motorola constructed a laboratory in the Phoenix area. This investment put Arizona on the map for the microelectronics industry and spurred regional investments by ON Semiconductor, Honeywell, Intel and now TSMC, positioning the state as a major hub for microelectronics manufacturing in the U.S.

The ever-growing importance of these products in our modern world demands a concerted effort to evaluate the path forward for this global industry in Arizona.

ASU Knowledge Enterprise and the Office of Government and Community Engagement, in collaboration with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, is proud to host members of the Arizona congressional delegation, industry leaders, technology experts and leading researchers to discuss the future of Arizona’s growing technology industry.

The 2021 event will be back on campus, live and in-person once again!

Circuit Talk: Live

Semiconductors are a key driver of the global economy, with far-reaching impact touching all aspects of government, industry and beyond. Recent shortages in the semiconductor market have brought about the looming threat of a supply chain crisis, meaning now is the time for collaborative innovation to drive generational change.

Seizing on this critical moment, MITRE Engenuity has assembled some of the world’s top semiconductor experts to discuss how the U.S. can leverage its pioneering leadership in cutting edge technology and set the pace for future growth of the industry. MITRE Engenuity believes that now is the time to reimagine the semiconductor ecosystem, reinvigorate U.S. innovation contributions to the value chain and renew confidence to ensure a flourishing free market.

Associate Professor Zachary Holman, the Director of Faculty Entrepreneurship in the Fulton Schools of Engineering at ASU, is among the panelists for the event.

Join MITRE Engenuity at Circuit Talk: Live to explore these possibilities together. Learn more about the speakers and event.
