SUNY Poly Wolfspeed partnership highlighted in The Jerusalem Post
The Jerusalem Post
"By attracting the manufacturing company Cree/Wolfspeed to build a $1 billion chip fabrication plant in the Utica suburb of Marcy, for example, the state created over 600 high-paying jobs. But for the deal to happen, Cree/Wolfspeed used the SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s Marcy campus to make silicon carbide chips while also employing an existing wafer line at SUNY Poly’s Albany campus that was upgraded to make the commercial chips until the Utica fab was completed.
"Bottom line: Cree’s investment has been a game-changer for Utica, as this funding, along with other investments in chip building in the Mohawk Valley, is growing the town’s downtown and other main corridors. Now, Upstate New York has become a tech hub for advanced silicon chips because of the collaboration and synergies between industry and university campuses."
