University of Illinois-led SONIC Center awarded $30 million for computing on nanoscale fabrics

Led by faculty at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a multi-university research team has received $30 million to launch the Systems On Nanoscale Information fabriCs (SONIC) Center. The center – part of a new $194 million initiative called the Semiconductor Technology Advanced Research network (STARnet) – will focus on substantially enhancing the information processing power and storage capacity of integrated circuits (ICs) and related systems, which is critical in maintaining reliability as devices continue to shrink and improve in energy efficiency.
