May 28, 2024 | Travis Kelly, American Made Advocacy

Some in Washington, D.C. have the misperception that the CHIPS Act is all we need to address serious supply chain challenges. Using a baseball analogy, investing only in semiconductors would be batting .333, a pretty good average. But this isn’t baseball. We need to bat 1.000 through legislation and policies to invest 100% of the technology stack, including printed circuit boards (PCBs) and IC substrates.
