”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. For decades, Denmark has been very active designing custom chips, activities which have been crucial for the business of many companies, and an activity which has often been overlooked in the bigger picture. Based on a short historical perspective, this session will present actual chip designs and tool developments for chip design.
