On Monday, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook announced that the technology company that makes the popular iPhone has signed a multibillion-dollar deal with the U.S.-based company Broadcom to manufacture microchips domestically.

Some of those components, including FBAR filters, will be “designed and built in several key American manufacturing and technology hubs,” including Fort Collins, Colorado, Apple said.
