A Texas Semiconductor Boom on the Horizon

In the years since the COVID-19 pandemic crippled the global supply chain for chips that power everything from video games to cars to medical devices, semiconductors have been atop the national policy agenda. These shortages inspired a flurry of legislation, most notably the federal CHIPS Act, that aimed to “re-shore” semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S.

The University of Texas at Austin figures heavily into the national semiconductor picture. Researchers at UT are discovering new ways to improve semiconductors; big companies are investing in this work; and coalitions are bringing together players across the ecosystem to make Texas the center of the surging U.S. semiconductor scene.
