The CHIP Act’s Blind Spot | A Lifeline for Intel | I Just Saw a Face

July 31, 2020

The Weekly Briefing podcast: Reviving semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S. This week, we interview Adam Khan, founder and CEO of Akhan Semiconductor; he is joined by Akhan board member vice admiral Charles “Willy” Moore. We talk about manufacturing capabilities, the increasing interest in semiconductors other than silicon, and the requirements of the U.S. military for advanced electronics. Also, we discuss Intel’s intimation it might stop developing new process technologies and what that might mean for semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S. – and also speculate how Intel might prosper operating a full-time, leading-edge foundry.
