The United States Department of Commerce announced on Tuesday that its National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has signed a research and development (R&D) deal with Alphabet Inc.'s Google to create and manufacture semiconductors.

According to the department's written statement, those chips will be used by researchers "to develop new nanotechnology and semiconductor devices," and made by SkyWater Technology at their manufacturing facility in Bloomington, Minnesota.

"This is a great example of how government, industry and academic researchers can work together to enhance US leadership in this critically important industry," Under Secretary of Commerce for Standards and Technology and NIST Director Laurie E. Locascio commented.
