The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), backed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), announces plans to invest $194m across semiconductor research network STARnet.

The SIA, jointly administered by DARPA, the US Government’s defence research and development unit, and the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), has announced plans to jointly invest a total of $194m over the next five years for research into semiconductor research.
The money will be used to fund research projects across the Semiconductor Technology Advanced Research network (STARnet), which is comprised of six multi-university research centres made up from 39 different universities:

  • The Center for Future Architectures Research (C-FAR), led by the University of Michigan;
  • The Center for Spintronic Materials, Interfaces and Novel Architectures (C-SPIN), led by the University of Minnesota;
  • The Center for Function Accelerated nanoMaterial Engineering (FAME), led by the University of California, Los Angeles;
  • The Center for Low Energy Systems Technology (LEAST), led by the University of Notre Dame;
  • The Center for Systems on Nanoscale Information Fabrics (SONIC), led by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign;
