University of Arkansas breaks ground on semiconductor research and fabrication facility


The University of Arkansas has broken ground a new semiconductor research and fabrication facility to manufacture microelectronic chips made with silicon carbide.

Located next to the National Centre for Reliable Electric Power Transmission at the research technology park, it is hoped the site will increase the US’ competitiveness in the silicon carbide electronics market.

To do this, the facility will allow the federal government, businesses, and other universities to prototype with silicon carbide, something that is currently not offered elsewhere in the US.

Education and training will also be offered onsite to help workforce development and employ the next generation of engineers and technicians for semiconductor manufacturing.
