A New Era for New York
Fueling America’s Microchip Resurgence
The CHIPS Act presents the most significant opportunity in modern history for the U.S. to re-emerge as a global leader in microelectronics R&D, workforce education and training, and supply chain transformation by establishing a National Semiconductor Technology Center (NSTC) and building new domestic manufacturing facilities.
New York is home to the infrastructure, resources, expertise, and workforce to lead the effort starting on day one.
New York's Semiconductor Industry
Direct Jobs Associated with Semiconductor Industry
STEM-Related College Graduates a Year
The Albany NanoTech Complex is the most advanced, publicly-owned 300mm semiconductor R&D facility in the United States. And it is ready to expand.
In addition, New York State has four more shovel-ready sites for new fabs with developed infrastructure and plentiful power, water and sewer capacity.
A Leader in Technology and Innovation
New York State has been the leader in computing design, development, and manufacturing since the opening of IBM's Watson Computing Laboratory in 1945 in New York City,
Today we are home to some of the most remarkable microelectronic R&D taking place anywhere in the world, including global industry leaders like GlobalFoundries, Wolfspeed, onsemi, and IBM. New York has the most comprehensive higher education system in the country - the State University of New York - as well as two Ivy League universities and a vast network of public and private institutions that have ensured we can get to work the moment USICA becomes law.
Roadmap to the National Semiconductor Technology Center
New York is home to the nation's most advanced, publicly-owned 300mm semiconductor R&D facility in the U.S. and has shovel-ready sites for new manufacturing.
Nation-Leading Workforce Development
New York has the workforce development engine to prepare people for jobs at every stage of the R&D, manufacturing, and distribution process.
Proven World-Class Research and Development
Home to SUNY, two Ivy League universities, semiconductor industry global leaders, and R&D facilities, we are prepared to unleash the next generation of chip technology.
Existing Nationwide Partnerships
Albany NanoTech has developed partnerships with top universities and industry leaders outside of New York and is prioritizing the development of a diverse workforce for the industry.
