NIST, Google to Create Chips for Researchers, Startups

NIST News, September 13, 2022

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Google have signed an agreement to develop and produce chips that researchers can use to create new technologies. Under the agreement, Google will pay the initial cost of setting up production at the Bloomington, MN, semiconductor foundry of Skywater Technology, while NIST and university research partners will design the circuitry for the chips. The collaboration will make available a bottom-layer chip with specialized structures for measuring and testing the performance of components placed on top of it, including new kinds of memory devices, nanosensors, bioelectronics, and advanced devices needed for artificial intelligence and quantum computing. The chip designs will be open source, allowing researchers to pursue new ideas without restriction and to share data and designs freely. ...
