Central Florida Semiconductor Innovation Engine (Florida), led by the International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research (ICAMR, Inc.) (doing business as BRIDG), aims to play a critical role in supporting the nation's capability for semiconductor advanced packaging design and manufacturing, rooting a vital industry on American shores and securing national defense.
Lead organization: International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research (ICAMR, Inc.) (doing business as BRIDG — economic development organization).
Region of service: Osceola County, Florida, and surrounding counties (Central Florida) .
Competitive advantage: Over the last eight years, Osceola County, Florida, had the foresight to make key strategic investments in semiconductor talent pipelines, develop industry partnerships with global leaders in the semiconductor industry, and build an unprecedented county-owned fabrication facility on a green industrial park with space to grow. Today, the region has developed a physical infrastructure and talent advantage in an emerging subfield in the semiconductor technology sector focused on advanced semiconductor packaging, which is essential to computational computing, quantum computing, artificial intelligence and other highly complex and computationally-intensive technologies.
