Osceola County seals deal with SkyWater Technology to operate Center for NeoVation

New partner ideally positioned to expand BRIDG’s work at NeoCity  
 
SkyWater, which specializes in development and manufacturing of integrated circuits, will take over operation of the Center of NeoVation from the University of Central Florida.

SkyWater Technology – the only U.S.-owned and U.S.-based pure play semiconductor foundry – is coming to NeoCity in an agreement approved by the Osceola County Commission and company officials on Monday.

UCF is surrendering its obligations and investment under the existing lease agreement. BRIDG will remain as a non-profit partner to attract industry collaboration, while also fulfilling, and building upon, existing Department of Defense contracts.

The SkyWater contract strengthens current partnerships in NeoCity, including imec, TEL, Siemens and SUSS. Commissioners expect Skywater, based in Bloomington, Minn., to build on those relationships and to expand upon them – including fulfillment of ongoing contracts with the Department of Defense.

SkyWater will also move into the office building and bring with them high tech jobs including technicians, equipment engineers, and process engineers. Former BRIDG employees will have the opportunity to be interviewed for available positions with SkyWater, officials said.
