Research Challenges for the Semiconductor Industry
|Description:||This year's Phillip F. Bagwell Lecture is given by Steven Hillenius, Vice President, Semiconductor Research Corportation.
Abstract: The semiconductor industry has achieved extraordinary growth in productivity over the last 50 or more years through investment in basic research. The industry has depended on this basic research to find the breakthrough materials, structures, designs and architectures to enable the development of new technologies and applications. Much of that research has been defined and planned through the road mapping of needs that were determined by Moore’s law drive device and technology scaling. The industry is now facing a more challenging period where a mature technology environment will require more research diversity that goes beyond issues of device scaling.
