The Texoma Semiconductor Tech Hub, led by Southern Methodist University, seeks to unify existing and planned semiconductor supply chain infrastructure by enhancing regional collaboration and uplifting underserved communities through workforce expansion. Leveraging its central location and robust transportation network, this Tech Hub offers a semiconductor manufacturing model that geographically consolidates the semiconductor manufacturing supply chain from bare wafers to products. By deploying a geographically-distributed “fablet” model—building targeted, accessible labs for electronic design, semiconductor manufacturing, packaging, and testing— the Texoma Semiconductor Tech Hub will foster a consolidated semiconductor innovation ecosystem with supply chain resilience.

Strategy Development Grant Amount: $399,997
