Our research is separated into two parts, namely industry consortium and other programs. The industry consortium consists of several projects supported through industry membership where the funds are pooled to maximize the return on investment for each member. The projects supported cover design, materials, process, assembly, thermal management and integration, all in the area of packaging, leading to an industry centric multi-disciplinary consortium. The research within the PRC is also supported through several multi-year federal programs that are centers by themselves (in some cases) and individual industry contracts.
