Binghamton University to discuss next generation application in microelectronics


Researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York, will discuss critical next-generation applications in the microelectronics industry at a Capitol Hill luncheon briefing to be held at noon Monday, June 6, in the Science Committee Room, 2325 Rayburn House Office Building, Washington, D.C.

The electronics industry is about to undergo major changes due to the development of new manufacturing technologies in a flexible, lightweight, roll-to-roll (R2R) format. The briefing will discuss how the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing at Binghamton University will provide a research and development facility for many of these advancements in areas such as military and homeland security, medical diagnostics and treatment, flexible displays and electronics, computer and telecommunications, and consumer products. This center, a partnership between Binghamton University, Cornell University, Endicott Interconnect Technologies and the United States Display Consortium, will contribute to economic development for New York State and the nation.

This briefing is one in a series that is being coordinated by the Research Foundation of SUNY in cooperation with House of Science Committee Chairman Sherwood Boehlert to help New York’s Congressional delegation stay informed of the vitally important research and scholarship that is taking place at the State University.
