No Chips, No Digital: EU Chips Act


Must read: This news post by the European Commission:

“Did you know that more than 1 trillion computer chips were produced worldwide in 2020? That’s around 130 chips for every person on earth. Those tiny chips that make everything work – from your smartphones and electric scooters to trains or entire smart factories. However, we’ve been facing chip shortages since 2020.

Our February proposal on the European Chips Act addresses this.It aims to double our global market share by 2030 to 20%, producing the most sophisticated and energy-efficient semiconductors in Europe.

There’s good news – our proposal has recently been adopted by the Council. There’s progress, but more work needs to be done to make the EUChipsAct a reality.

Here’s why we need to be bold with microchips” Read on here.

PATTERN is fully in line with the European Commission’s strategy to achieve autonomy in the field of PICS (photonic integrated circuits) and related manufacturing processes!
