Chips 101 showcases RIT and Upstate NY skills in computer chip development and manufacturing
Becoming the Silicon Valley of the Northeast may have as much power as the computer chips that will soon be designed and developed in the upstate New York region. The recent Chips 101 event, hosted by RIT on Nov. 16, kept to that premise. More than 50 regional government and corporate representatives learned how computer chips are designed and manufactured—and how universities, government, and workforce development initiatives will contribute to this area.
