ITRS teams will ask the audience for input on critical challenges to keeping the industry on its historic growth trend
The advanced chip industry is moving rapidly into nanotechnology, a trend that will be presented by global experts at next week's 2005 ITRS Public Conference of the draft 2005 International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS).
The ITRS summer meeting, scheduled from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. July 13 at the San Francisco Marriott, will feature descriptions of emerging research devices and materials that explore nanotechnology potentials, along with the nanotech-related challenges faced by more established disciplines such as lithography, interconnect, and front-end processes.
"As a thematic topic for the latest Roadmap revision, the various working groups are paying special attention to industry assessments of technology needs in the nanometric domain," said Linda Wilson, ITRS Managing Editor and a key conference organizer. "We'd like as many technologists as possible to attend the meeting, participate in the open forums, and network with the ITRS teams who are driving the Roadmap."
A new edition to be released in December, the 2005 ITRS will contain extensive data and an assessment that have been developed by a consensus of more than 1000 industry experts from the US, Europe, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. The Roadmap guides industry suppliers and manufacturers in continuously improving the functionality and cost of semiconductors.
At the upcoming conference, ITRS teams will ask the audience for input on critical challenges to keeping the industry on its historic growth trend. The teams also will present potential solutions and identify areas of encouraging innovation. The ITRS teams invite audience participation in evaluating solutions that extend current processes, equipment sets, and architectures.
Examples and associated challenges of the industry's continuing penetration into the nanotech realm - generally defined as device or circuit dimensions below 100 nm - are contained in ITRS presentations, such as:
The 2005 ITRS is jointly sponsored by five organizations representing key chip-producing regions of the world. They include the European Semiconductor Industry Association, Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association, Korea Semiconductor Industry Association, Taiwan Semiconductor Industry Association, and the US Semiconductor Industry Association.
SEMATECH is the world's catalyst for accelerating the commercialization of technology innovations into manufacturing solutions.
