      There is no digital without chips statement by EU President Ursula von der Leyen presenting the EU’s Chips Act, as part of EU’s plan for “tech sovereignty. The Chips Act of EU and a similar act in US, are reactions to the declining share of semiconductor production, which today is mainly taking place in Asia. Denmark has a long tradition for chip production of highly specialized chips, and development of specialized equipment for chip production, activities which has often been overlooked in the bigger picture. Based on an introduction to the current chip shortage, this session will present actual chip production and tool developments for chip design.
