US ISES to focus on “Strengthening the U.S. Semiconductor Ecosystem”
BLOOMINGTON, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SkyWater Technology (NASDAQ: SKYT), the trusted technology realization partner, today announced that Thomas Sonderman, the company’s president and CEO, will be a keynote speaker at the first U.S. International Semiconductor Executive Summit. The US ISES provides a unique platform for leaders to strategize future industry opportunities. The theme of the Summit is “Strengthening the U.S. Semiconductor Ecosystem” and offers collaboration and networking for semiconductor companies facing common challenges.
Taking place in Scottsdale, Arizona from May 9–10, 2022, the event brings together participants from different sectors of the semiconductor supply chain and consists of political, business, financial, and research and industry leaders all under one roof.
Sonderman’s keynote will focus on strategies for revitalizing U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing. The current chip shortage and unprecedented pandemic have put a spotlight on supply chain vulnerabilities in the U.S.
According to Sonderman, “Creating a balanced and secure microelectronics supply chain is critical to reduce risk and enhance national security. This includes establishing a National Semiconductor Technology Center (NSTC) to drive synergistic innovation by bridging the gap between public and private sector R&D and commercialization. It also includes enabling comprehensive workforce development by increasing support for STEM education and apprentice programs and rapidly expanding the use of public-private partnerships to build the fabs of the future.”
Sonderman added: “By aggressively taking these actions, the U.S. can lay the groundwork for the next wave of emerging manufacturing technologies that will support the ever-increasing global demand for advanced microelectronics.”
