DARPA Program Seeks to Speed Up Integrated Circuit Design Cycle; Linton Salmon Comments

electronics motherboard microchip_EBizThe Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has issued a broad agency announcement seeking proposals for a three-year program that aims to improve power efficiency of customized military integrated circuits and accelerate the circuit design cycle.

DARPA said Monday the Circuit Realization At Faster Timescales initiative will allocate approximately $30 million in funds for research and development work on custom circuit design processes and a repository that aims to promote use of IC elements.

Linton Salmon, a program manager at DARPA Microsystems Technology Office, will oversee the CRAFT program, which also seeks to develop various sources for IC fabrication.

“If CRAFT is successful, design of custom integrated circuits will be far more readily available to those building DoD systems,” Salmon said.

“As a result, engineers will be able to make decisions based on the best technical solutions for the systems they are building, instead of worrying about circuit design delays or costs.”
