European Chips Act welcomed by SEMI

Global electronics industry organisation, SEMI, has applauded the publication of the European Chips Act, with it’s call to quadruple Europe’s semiconductor production capacity by 2030. 

Under the act, the European Commission is called to step up investments in Europe’s capabilities to innovate in the design, production and packaging of advanced chips. Additionally, the act aims to strengthen the European Union’s R&D leadership and to address the skills shortages in the region.

“SEMI supports the European Chips Act and similar legislation and incentives designed to strengthen the resilience of the global semiconductor industry and create a more robust supply chain,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO. “The current chip shortage has extended lead times for semiconductor manufacturing equipment and materials, thus delaying efforts to expand semiconductor production capacity. To maximize the effectiveness of incentives aimed at expanding capacity and addressing extended supply chain issues, they should include investments in both new and existing semiconductor manufacturing equipment and materials facilities.”

To avoid electronics supply-chain disruptions, you may also wish to consult an expert in electronics component supply. With more than three decades of supply-chain expertise, Astute Electronics is ideally placed to work with you on your daily component requirements.
