Welcome to the 39th Annual GOMACTech Conference

Reliability, Remembering the Recipe

MARCH 31- April 3, 2014 - Charleston, SC


In June 1994, Defense Secretary William Perry issued a directive to maximize reliance on existing commercial off-the shelf (COTS) electronics and directed the armed forces to buy products and components from commercial sources. The decision was based on reducing acquisition cost and eliminating outdated procurement regulations to take advantage of the exponential increase in commercial microelectronics capabilities (Moore's law). While technologies have continued to reach subsequently smaller nodes, market forces have driven manufacturing, capital equipment, and design to overseas sources. Although domestic defense systems have benefited from these technical advancements, these same enabling technologies are no longer solely available to the tactical advantage of the US and its allies. The nexus of integrated microsystems, systems-on-chip, and multiple viable semiconductor material systems presents new opportunities for functionality via heterogeneous integration (synthesis of dissimilar materials, circuits, and sub-systems). Design of these heterogeneously integrated microsystems will also require efficient small batch, custom, next generation design automation tools. The challenge of adaptive threats in the asymmetric paradigm drives the need for higher level integration and transition methodologies.

The Government Microcircuit Applications & Critical Technology Conference (GOMACTech) is the premier forum for reporting on government funded micro and Nano-electronic research and complementary efforts that focus on the technology needs of government systems.
