A Deeper Dive Into Microelectronics

Microelectronics is in the news and a key focus of current legislation. It is a part of everything we do in the military and business. But do we properly understand the microelectronics sector to make the right business, government, and policy decisions? In this episode, Ken Miller dives deeper into the topic with scholar and author Chris Miller to better understand the history of chip design and manufacturing and the impact of chips on all aspects of life. 


Chris teaches international history at The Fletcher School at Tufts University and recently wrote the book Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology. Together, Ken and Chris discuss the history of microelectronics, production and design challenges, the possibilities The Chips Act funding opened, dynamics in the Asia-Pacific region, and the role of government in the chip technology industry.
