Integration of an ESH Chapter into to the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS)
(Intel Corporation, Chandler, AZ)
The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) is an assessment of the semiconductor technology requirements. The objective of the ITRS is to ensure advancements in the performance of integrated circuits. This assessment, called road mapping, is a cooperative effort of the global industry manufacturers and suppliers, government organizations, consortia, and universities. The ITRS identifies the technological challenges and needs facing the semiconductor industry over the next 15 years. It is sponsored by the European Semiconductor Industry Association (ESIA), the Japan Semiconductor Industry Association (JSIA), the Korean Semiconductor Industry Association (KSIA), the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), and Taiwan Semiconductor Industry Association (TSIA). This presentation will concentrate on the integration of an ESH Chapter in the ITRS, discussion of ESH difficult challenges, 2004 ITRS requirements, 2005 ITRS objectives for ESH, 2005 progress and current opportunities for engagement in the ITRS process.
