The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) encourages all relevant stakeholders, industry representatives, and standards-setting organizations to participate in two upcoming December events: the CHIPS R&D Chiplets Interfaces Technical Standards Workshop and the CHIPS R&D Digital Twin Technical Standards Workshop. Separate registration for each event is required; virtual attendance is free.
Chiplets Interfaces Technical Standards, December 12-13, 2023
The CHIPS Research and Development Office’s Chiplets Interfaces Technical Standards Workshop will examine potential for chiplet-based architectures to drive progress in the semiconductor and microelectronics industry. The event will also examine the role of technical standards for physical and logical interfaces in enabling innovation. NIST notes that the factors to be considered in identifying standards priorities include “potential for broad impact, feasibility for accelerated development, and suitability for various standards development channels, including through alliances, incubators and accelerators, and standards setting organizations.”
The workshop will be held as a hybrid in-person and virtual event, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET December 12, 2023, and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET on December 13, 2023, at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE).
R&D Digital Twin Technical Standards, December 14-15, 2023
The second related workshop will focus on the potential for digital twin applications—including modeling, simulation, and co-simulation—to support reliable, resilient, and high-quality manufacturing processes and enable trusted supply chains. Relevant stakeholders are encouraged to participate and contribute to identifying community priorities for specific standards efforts. The event will examine factors to be considered in identifying digital twin standards priorities, including “potential for broad impact, feasibility for accelerated development, and suitability for various standards development channels, including through alliances, incubators and accelerators, and standards setting organizations.”
The workshop will be a hybrid in-person and virtual event from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET on December 14, 2023, and 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET on December 15, 2023, at NCCoE.
The workshops are the latest effort to bolster U.S. semiconductor research and manufacturing. They are an outcome of the CHIPS and Science Act, enacted in 2022, which seeks to improve America's semiconductor capacity; promote domestic research and development; create regional tech hubs; and support a highly skilled and inclusive STEM workforce.
