MILPITAS, Calif. — July 27, 2022 — SEMI, the industry association serving the global electronics design and manufacturing supply chain, today applauded the passage of the Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors for America (CHIPS) Act of 2022 by the United States Senate and urged the House of Representatives to swiftly pass the legislation.

The bill provides a 25% tax credit for U.S. facilities that produce semiconductors or chipmaking equipment and $52 billion in funding for new semiconductor programs. The funding includes $39 billion for a grant program available to semiconductor manufacturers as well as equipment and materials suppliers and $11 billion for federal semiconductor research programs.

“It is crucial for the House to join the Senate in passing the investment tax credit and funding for CHIPS Act programs in order to bolster the semiconductor supply chain based in the United States and keep pace with industry incentives offered by other regions,” said Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO. “These policies will strengthen semiconductor manufacturing and R&D in the U.S. while creating thousands of high-skill jobs. Ensuring the competitiveness and resiliency of the U.S. semiconductor ecosystem requires that semiconductor manufacturing equipment and materials providers – vital contributors to fabs – are included as eligible recipients of the incentives.”

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, July 27, 2022 — The electronics manufacturing industry is applauding the U.S. Senate for taking bipartisan action on legislation that will, if enacted, spur a new era of innovation, manufacturing and investment within the electronics industry.

The “CHIPS+” legislation, includes more than $52 billion funding to implement the CHIPS Act; at least $2.5 billion for advanced packaging R&D; as well as additional measures to boost American R&D. The measure passed in a bipartisan vote, 64-33.

“This legislation is the first step in strengthening a critical part of the U.S. electronics supply chain,” said IPC President and CEO John Mitchell. “Today's vote demonstrates that a robust and innovative electronics manufacturing industry is a strategic priority for the United States.”

“With the August recess looming, the House must take action now and pass this legislation without delay,” Mitchell continued. “We also urge the Biden administration and Congress to remain committed to continue the work of bolstering the entire electronics ecosystem to ensure innovative, resilient, and secure electronics manufacturing. Chips do not function on their own.”

IPC is the industry’s leading advocate for building U.S. advanced packaging capabilities. IPC studies have urged Congress to couple its investments in semiconductor manufacturing with additional support for advanced packaging, printed circuit boards (PCBs), and related technologies. Without such action, U.S.-made chips will continue to be sent offshore to be manufactured into finished products, leaving the United States vulnerable to supply chain shocks.

NASHVILLE – July 2022 – Magnalytix, providing real-time reliability solutions for electronics manufacturing, announces that it will partner with Restronics Southeast to host a J-STD-001H Objective Evidence for Reliability Workshop on August 25, 2022 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at STI Electronics in Madison, AL.

The Workshop will cover the following topics:

• Qualifying and controlling either a cleaning or no-clean process

• Requirements for developing an Objective Evidence Plan

• Objective Evidence Template handout

• Demo of Magnalytix OE-300 SIR/Process Control Testing System for the assembly floor

The Magnalytix OE-300 is a first-of-its-kind test system that enables assembly operations to promptly generate true objective evidence data during daily operations for effective process control.

The electrical test method exposes the test board to elevated temperature and humidity, which mobilize undesirable process residues. The Magnalytix OE-300 then detects the impact any mobilized metal ions have in the form of measurable leakage currents or fully formed dendrites, which can be the cause of intermittent or total device failure. The Process Control Test is performed over a 1-2 hour timeframe.
