The semiconductor chip shortage is a major global problem that urgently needs solving, and the CHIPS Act is an attempt at this! Camille and Tom are talking with Ollie Whitehouse, Group CTO for NCC Group, about the intent behind and the possible implications of the CHIPS Act and how it could impact the shortage of semiconductors. In this episode, they answer the question of what is the CHIPS Act, give predictions to how the act will impact supply and demand for CPUs, discuss the economic incentives proposed by the act, and consider the geopolitical implications of passing the CHIPS Act. Through tax breaks on materials for CPU manufacturing and improving national infrastructure to meet the global demand for semiconductors, the CHIPS Act deserves the tech industry’s full attention.
