SCALES will leverage the consortium members’ exceptional research, engineering, and workforce development capabilities to regain U.S. leadership in advanced and secure semiconductor assembly and packaging technologies—while developing an ecosystem to support the reshoring of manufacturing in this critical segment of the electronics supply chain.

SCALES is a non-profit organization that seeks to enable new R&D centers and prototyping facilities in the Southeast region.

SCALES brings together leading experts from academia, industry, and national labs in the area of advanced semiconductor design and fabrication; advanced packaging and heterogeneous integration; 2.5D and 3D design; quantum physics; emerging devices and technologies; EDA; test, characterization and assurance.

Although SCALES is primarily focused on the Southeastern region of the US, its broad scope includes national and economic security. We welcome any organization that can contribute.
