Joint University Microelectronics Program 2.0

demanding challenges require creative ideas to deliver brilliant solutions

JUMP 2.0 is an SRC-led public-private partnership in cooperation with DARPA, co-sponsored by SRC, DARPA, the commercial semiconductor industry, and the defense industrial base. JUMP 2.0 will drive long-term pathfinding university research that substantially increases the performance, efficiency, and capabilities of broad classes of electronics systems for both commercial and military applications.

The program will sponsor seven academic research Centers focused on critical technology themes, one Center for each theme. These seven themes will benefit both the defense and industrial sectors by providing the Department of Defense with an unmatched technological edge in advanced radar, communications, and weapons systems, and provide the U.S. economy with unique information technology and processing capabilities critical to commercial competitiveness and future economic growth.
