Communities of Interest

  • The Communities of Interest (CoIs) were established as a mechanism to encourage multi-agency coordination and collaboration in cross-cutting technology focus areas with broad multiple Component investment.
A collaboration between the Air Force Research Laboratory and American Semiconductor has produced a flexible silicon-on-polymer chip with more than 7,000 times the memory capability of any current	 flexible integrated circuit on the market today. The manufacturing takes advantage of flexible hybrid electronics, integrating traditional manufacturing techniques with 3D electronic printing to create thin, flexible semiconductors that can augment efforts in wearable technology, asset monitoring, logistics and more.
