BRIDG, the not-for-profit public-private partnership conducting semiconductor research and development at the NeoCity campus east of Kissimmee, has announced a three-year contract with Radiance Technologies to develop advanced semiconductor packaging technologies. The contract could be worth as much as $28 million.
This new deal expands an existing collaboration between the two organizations and represents the first of many anticipated projects focused on BRIDG’s integration technology platforms.
Radiance serves the Department of Defense, national intelligence community and other government agencies in developing cyber security, systems engineering, prototyping and integration as well as operational and strategic intelligence solutions.
“Radiance is pleased to build on our existing relationship with BRIDG by leveraging their digital and analog silicon interposer lines to build state of the art, high mix, low volume microelectronics for the DoD. BRIDG is filling a critical gap in the US microelectronics ecosystem with their advanced system integration and packaging capabilities.” said , Radiance Technologies Vice President Dr. Robert Overbeek said in a release announcing the new agreement.

The BRIDG consortium operates a state-of-the-art microelectronics fabrication facility that has already been awarded government and industry contracts and partners through collaborative technology development and secure manufacturing programs.
“This partnership builds upon prior strategic investments at BRIDG and supports our broader mission to establish a credible and reliable domestic capability for semiconductor R&D and production accessible to the industrial base,” said BRIDG Interim CEO Brian Sapp. “Together with Radiance and other partners, this establishes BRIDG as an industry leader in strengthening our domestic semiconductor supply chain.”
Radiance joins a growing list of BRIDG partners, including industry leaders L3Harris Technologies, Siemens, Massey Services, Tokyo Electron, SUSS MicroTec among others, and stakeholders Osceola County, the University of Central Florida, Florida High Tech Corridor Council, and the State of Florida, who have invested tens of millions of dollars into the work going on at BRIDG and NeoCity.
