The University of Notre Dame and five other universities have been chosen to share in $194 million for research supporting the U.S. semiconductor industry.

Notre Dame and the other schools will lead microelectronics research centers under the new Semiconductor Technology Advanced Research Network program, or STARnet. The five other schools are the universities of Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, UCLA and the University of California, Berkeley.

Each center will get about $30 million over five years from the Semiconductor Research Corporation and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Notre Dame's center will explore new concepts for dramatically lowering the power needs of electronics. It also will investigate the use of new materials.
