The Statewide Semiconductor Initiative on Friday, November 17, hosted by the Florida Semiconductor Institute at the University of Florida, proved to be a resounding success. Attended by industry executives, academic leaders, government officials, and workforce development representatives, the gathering featured a comprehensive agenda.
Designed to set the standard for future STEM buildings across national and international campuses and transform the artificial intelligence (AI) and data science workforce, the University of Florida Friday held a celebratory ribbon cutting for the Malachowsky Hall for Data Science & Information Technology.
The semiconductor industry is evolving beyond traditional cost-cutting and size reduction methods. Designers are exploring Heterogeneous Integration (HI) to enhance cost-effectiveness and functionality through advanced packaging.
The University of Florida’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering has launched the Florida Semiconductor Institute (FSI). FSI will be a central hub, both on campus and across the state, dedicated to leading advancements in semiconductor technology for the 21st century.
In a recent publication, Dr. Volker Sorger, the Director of FSI, and his team showcased the potential construction of hybrid photonic-electronic circuits that can revolutionize photonic memory technology.
FSI was the subject of an excellent feature in the Epoch Times. The article provides a great deal of context in terms of supply chain challenges, political considerations, and more. Read the full story here.
The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced 34 semifinalists for the first-ever NSF Regional Innovation Engines (NSF Engines) competition, spanning nearly all key technology areas and societal and economic challenges highlighted in the “CHIPS and Science Act.”
With a team of researchers, we recently demonstrated a photonic chip-based RAM (random access memory). The memory is programmed electronically using micro-heaters allowing for seamless chip integration while its information content is read optically at high speed.
Professor Volker Sorger was proud to receive the 2023 SPIE Maria Goeppert Mayer Award in Photonics in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of photonics and the development of innovative, high-impact technologies.
