The Georgia Tech 3D Systems Packaging Research Center (PRC) hosted its bi-annual industry partnership meeting on May 25-27, 2016 with its 50 member companies.

During the event, the Georgia Tech PRC faculty and students reviewed their current industry programs and proposed to launch a large- scale industry consortium centered on a New era of Automotive Electronics (NAE) that includes advances in computing and communication electronics for centralized or distributed computing as well as sensing electronics for autonomous driving and high power and high-temperature electronics for electric cars.

The newly formed consortium will involve a 100 person co- development R&D team that includes 20 Georgia Tech Faculty, 30 Ph.D. and M.S. students, and 50 industry engineers who are integrated into one of the above three R&D focus areas.

Companies newly joining the PRC automotive industry consortium are Tier 1, Tier 2 and OEMs  from the US, Germany, France, Japan and Korea.
