CSME mission statement

Semiconductor technology advancements have driven great progress in computing, communication, information and data processing, as well as energy generation and distribution.  It is evident that this technology has made a profound impact on almost every aspect of our life.  It is one of the essential industries for our global economy and security.  Ensuring this ecosystem to be secure is therefore critical to the well-being of the global community.

In a global market the Center for Secure Microelectronics Ecosystem (CSME) will foster the collaboration between industry, academia and the U.S. government with the aim to ensure a secure supply of materials, semiconductor chips and related tools all the way from the foundry to the packaged system assuming a zero-trusted model.
