North America's Semiconductor Moment

Semiconductors power all nations' digital economies. Semiconductor supply chain disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic—from cars to TVs to defense systems—also highlighted North America's dependence on chips made in East Asia. In response, the United States has committed $52 billion through the CHIPS and Science Act to bring home advanced semiconductor manufacturing and improve supply chain resilience. Mexico's geographic proximity, strong manufacturing sector, and favorable terms of trade uniquely position it to join the U.S.-led global semiconductor supply chain reshuffling. But can Mexico seize the moment? Join Future Tense and ASU’s Convergence Lab to discuss the tremendous opportunities for strengthening semiconductor supply chains across the United States and Mexico, as well as efforts to date and what lies ahead.
