|iNEMI's Semiconductor Technology Roadmap Chapter is extracted and edited directly from the Executive Summary and Overall Roadmap Characteristics sections of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS). The participation of experts from five international regions (Europe, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the U.S.A.) ensures that the ITRS is a valid source of guidance for the semiconductor industry for extending the historical advancement of semiconductor technology and the worldwide integrated circuit (IC) market. The five regions jointly sponsor the ITRS, and as a result, represent international consensus for the iNEMI chapter on Semiconductor Technology.
iNEMI's 2015 Semiconductor Technology Chapter predicts the main trends in the semiconductor industry spanning 10 years (2015-2025) into the future, supported by the original 2013 ITRS source document, which covers an extended 15-year period from 2013 through 2028. This roadmap chapter provides a solid summary of the trends and challenges facing the semiconductor industry. The 64 pages contain 13 figures and three tables that help the reader understand the issues. Several hundred people contributed to this truly international roadmap effort.
