CHIPS Act of 2022: How Does Premio Fit Into The Semiconductor Ecosystem?

Premio Technical Insights - CHIPS Act of 2022: Where does Premio fit in this semiconductor ecosystem Banner

On August 9th, 2022, President Biden officially signed an executive order for the CHIPS Act to strengthen the nation’s supply chain and reestablish global semiconductor leadership. Stated in the CHIPS Act of 2022, “Only 12% of chips are currently manufactured domestically, compared to 37% in the 1990s.” As the demand for semiconductors heighten and global competitors continue to invest heavily on semiconductor research, the United States have recognized the vulnerabilities the country faces if this decline is not addressed. This bill provides $52.7 billion in subsidies and tax credits to chip makers with operations in the United States. Over the next 5 years, these funds will be used to: 

  • Address and maintain a competitive position as a semiconductor manufacturing leader 
  • Strengthen domestic supply chain and national security
  • Increase semiconductor workforce (additional 90,000 workers by 2025) 
With the CHIPS Act passing, leading semiconductor companies from Intel, TSMC, GlobalFoundries, Samsung Foundry, and Texas instruments have announced multi-billion-dollar investments in the United States for expanding, upgrading, and building new fabs (fabrication facilities).
