On January 20th 2023, UTD’s new research center, The Center for Harsh Environment Semiconductors and Systems (CHESS) reveals their demand for materials and devices that can sustain extreme mechanical conditions, used for military procedures and assist the  North Texas Semiconductor Institute (NTxSI) in accelerating semiconductor innovation. In addition to CHESS’s demand, the director of CHESS, Dr. Manuel Quevedo-Lopez  explains how the materials and devices will be the key to advance national security, computing, communication systems and more.
