The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is hosting its Electronics Resurgence Initiative July 15-17 at Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena and The Fillmore Detroit. The summit will focus on obstacles to Moore’s Law, the transistor scaling that has allowed for 50 years of progress in electronics.
The summit is part of DARPA’s Electronics Resurgence Initiative, a five-year, $1.5 billion investment in the future of domestic, U.S. government, and defense electronics systems. It will bring together those most impacted by the coming inflection in Moore’s Law and highlight the technical advancements of initiative programs, support continued research collaborations, and offer opportunities to solicit community input on new efforts.
“The Summit will emphasize the impact of advanced electronics for both semiconductor designers and manufacturers as well as the electronics user base, where sectors like automotive, telecommunications, and defense will increasingly rely on new technologies to maintain a competitive edge,” says Mark Rosker, office director for DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office, which is hosting the event. “Attendees will have an opportunity to hear presentations and participate in activities that highlight the technical achievements of ERI’s research programs and create opportunities to contribute input on new efforts.”
The initiative is forging collaborations among the commercial electronics community, defense industrial base, university researchers, and the Department of Defense to move from an era of generalization to one of circuit specialization.
The initiative today encompasses more than 19 programs.
Registration and more information about the summit are available here. The cost to attend is $375.
