Joint Development Foundation to co-host first CHIPS R&D Standards Summit with industry leaders 

By August 25, 2023Announcement

In an era marked by rapid technological advancement, the role of standards in driving innovation and ensuring quality can’t be overstated. To that end, the Joint Development Foundation, a neutral and non-profit home to important industry-driven open standards such as AV1, SPDX, C2PA, and more, is proud to co-host the upcoming CHIPS Research and Development (R&D) Standards Summit alongside CHIPS Research and Development Office (CHIPS R&D Office), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization (IEEE-ISTO), the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI), IPC International, the Joint Development Foundation (JDF), the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Program (NITRD), the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO), SEMI North America, and the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).  

The summit will bring together industry leaders in the semiconductor and microelectronics space to discuss opportunities for standards-driven innovation, incubating and accelerating ideas across industry, academia, and government, providing training and education, and enabling a standards-capable workforce. The summit signifies a strong commitment to excellence and collaboration in the semiconductor and microelectronics industry and a community-driven approach to exploring its future.

Why you should attend

The CHIPS R&D Standards Summit is the first point on a roadmap of innovation, cooperation, investment, and engagement in standards for this economically-critical industry. Industry leaders and standards development experts will come together to discuss:
