AFWERX Challenge: Advanced Microelectronics

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

The challenge:

What is your solution for a 14nm advanced Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) or System on a Chip (SoC) that can operate and improve the features of an autonomous product of your choosing while maintaining the integrity (provenance, traceability) and security needs (information protection, mathematical algorithms) of critical systems?

By participating, your opportunity is to:

  • Receive resources and support to develop cutting-edge SoC while maintaining the design IP that is yours to retain
  • Access a state of the art SoC development platform that includes design tools and critical IP functions, a value of up to $10M
  • Partner with the United States Air Force (USAF) to fabricate your SoC
  • Leverage AFWERX to augment your areas of expertise through peer and government partnerships
  • Attend the Challenge Showcase event/s in Las Vegas, if your solution is selected, to meet peers, USAF customers, other government agencies and the investment community
  • Receive official recognition for you, your team and your company
  • Help the USAF and improve the security of the United States
  • Gain access to a top Department of Defense initiative with an initial approved budget of $2 billion

Phase 1 has a submission deadline of January 22, 2019.  Please click below to learn more about this multi-phase event.
