Micron Announces New Memory Design Center in Atlanta

Micron Technology, one of the world's largest semiconductor manufacturers and the only U.S.-based manufacturer of memory, today announced plans for its new memory design center in Midtown Atlanta, expanding the company's reach into the Southeast. The new site, which will open its doors for business in January 2022, enables Micron to increase its access to Atlanta's rich pool of technical talent to further advance its memory design and engineering leadership, while also driving a positive impact in the community. Micron aims to build strong partnerships with many institutions in the region including Emory University, Georgia Tech, Morehouse College, Spelman College and University of Georgia.

Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, Micron maintains U.S. offices in California, Colorado, Minnesota, Texas and Virginia and has a global manufacturing and research and development (R&D) network that spans 17 countries. Memory is at the leading edge of semiconductor manufacturing, requiring production of advanced technologies that are pushing the laws of physics. R&D investments in the field are critical for advancing DRAM innovation. Micron's Atlanta Design Center expansion will create up to 500 jobs across various STEM disciplines including computer hardware and electrical and electronic engineering.
Memory and storage are a growing portion of the global semiconductor market and represent approximately 30% of all semiconductors today. Micron's R&D investments are helping to meet the growing global demand for memory and storage, while furthering U.S. technology leadership. Micron and its Foundation have been actively engaging with Georgia Tech. The ongoing relationship between Micron and the university provides students with experiential research and equitable access to engineering education. Collaboration efforts include work with Georgia Tech's Center for Engineering Education and Diversity (CEED), a peer-to-peer mentoring program, Micron's COVID-19 UV Robot Design Challenge, and alignment with class curriculum to foster growth in education and industrywide career opportunities for underrepresented students.

I live about an hour from Atlanta and I am not surprised by this. Alpharetta (just outside the perimeter of Atlanta) has EXPLODED in the past 10 years with all kinds of tech companies. It's almost like a mini Silicon Valley.
