In the late 1990s, the US Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) established a joint research program with the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) through the Semiconductor Research Corp. (SRC), known as the Focus Center Research Program. One of these FCRP centers is the Gigascale Systems Research Center (GSRC), whose focus is on the systems architecture and design aspects of electronics technology. The research of the GSRC is of great value to the US Department of Defense, since design remains an important challenge for DoD systems. This partnership is an excellent example of government and industry collaboration on precompetitive research of common interest and benefit.
