Institute for Extreme Semiconductor Chips

Strategic Partners

The institute values each of its strategic partners and the support they give to aid in extreme semiconductor chip research and development.

This Research is Supported by Our Strategic Partners

This institute gets its support and its research is made possible in large part to the funding, collaborations and contributions of our strategic partners in two key areas of research furthering and application: 

Federal and National Partners

Northrop Grumman (Mission Systems Group)

The institute will supply Northrop Grumman with high quality layers of extreme semiconductor AlN which will then be used by them to produce next generation high power, high frequency electronic chips for defense systems.  This multi-year joint program is supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA.)

Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)

Our close scientific collaboration with the NRL has led to numerous joint publications and U.S. patents. The focus of the work has been on developing extreme semiconductor chips for U.S. defense and commercial applications. This collaboration also provides us access to the state-of-the-art extreme chip measurements at NRL and serves as a unbiased evaluation of our technology.

  • Sandia National Laboratory
  • Sensor Electronics Technology (SETi)


University Partners

Georgia Institute of Technology (GaTech)

At GaTech, we work to improve conductivity control and contact making for the extreme chips under two joint Navy supported programs, one of which is the Multi University Interdisciplinary Research Initiative (MURI.) This collaboration allows us full access to GaTech's Nanofabrication Laboratories.

University of Wisconsin at Madison (UWM)

 At UWM, we work under an Air Force supported program to improve the high frequency performance of the extreme chips. Under this collaboration we get full access to world-class electron beam chip writing systems. This collaboration has also led to other joint proposals to develop chips using extreme semiconductors such as AlGaN.
