Mission


SRC’s mission is to build and maintain a
diverse range of research programs,
some of which are worldwide. Each of
these research corporations is
sponsored and funded by SRC in an
attempt to keep synergy between the
programs.

History


1981
-

the Semiconductor Industry Association
(SIA) entertained a proposal for a
“Semiconductor Research Cooperative”


1982
-

the Corporation met for the first time,
with Erich Bloch as the chairman


1987
-

an SRC initiative led to the creation of
SEMATECH


1992
-

the National Technology Roadmap for
Semiconductors (NTRS) is created to plan a
future for the next 15 years


1995
-

the first semiconductor research gap
analysis is developed

History (continued)


1997
-

the Focus Center Research Program
is formed by the SRC to push CMOS to its
theoretical limits


2005
-

the
Nanoelectronics

Research
Initiative (NRI) is formed by the SRC to find
a future beyond CMOS


2009
-

the Education Alliance is formed to
focus on technology sectors adjacent to
semiconductors



2010
-

the Energy Research Initiative is
established

President, CEO: Larry
Sumney


Made President and CEO of
SRC in 1984.


Degrees:


B.A. in Physics (w/ Honors) in
1962 from Washington and
Jefferson College.


Master’s in Engineering
Administration from George
Washington University.


DSc in Systems Engineering
and Mathematics (GWU).


Received National Medal of
Technology in 2007.

Global Research
Collaboration


The GRC is an
international
consortium which
maintains the
collaboration of
research in
Universities with the
industrial standards of
Semiconductor
companies and
government agencies.


STATnet

is a university
managed network in the
U.S. which looks at the
“big picture” in
semiconductor research.
Making sure we are
keeping up with
international competition
and they help
regulate
funding for
new
technologies from
industries and government
sponsors.

Semiconductor
Technology Advanced
Research Network

Nanoelectronics

Research
Initiative


NRI explores the
advancement of circuit
technologies. They
continually produce
devices that improve the
power and efficiency,
while decreasing size
and cost. However, they
have to maintain a
gradual process to
integrate current
devices.


ERI is an industry and
university collaboration to
keep the generation,
distribution, and
infrastructure as “green” as
they economically can,
while still keeping up with
international competition.
They use photovoltaic and
smart grid research to
create clean, reliable, and
efficient systems and
devices.

Energy Research
Initiative

Education
Alliance


SRCEA consists of
undergraduate and
graduate programs
which consist of
regular school work
while integrating
industrial research.
They often help with
private funding and
make sure students
are well prepared for
future careers.


FCRP is another “big
picture” group. Works
directly between students

(currently 246)/
doctors
and U.S. Department of
Defense/industries. Last
year granted 10 patents,
78 since inception in
1998. Apparently they are
pushing the limits of the
CMOS and moving past.

Focus Center
Research Program
(Legacy)

Future Projects


University Research Center Network


SRC and DARPA are currently working on a
$194 million project for microelectronics
research centers in 6 universities (Michigan,
Minnesota, Notre Dame, UCLA, UC Berkeley,
Ubrana
-
Champaign)


Microchip Fabrication Research


SRC has funded a professor named Oliver
Chyan

with a grant in cooperation with Intel to
create new tools to measure and characterize
plasma
-
etch
-
polymers for microchip fabrication


Conclusion


The SRC is working to build research programs
around the world to aid in the furthering of the field of
Electronics.



The SRC has established 6 major programs for
research in different areas


Global Research Collaboration


Semiconductor Technology Advanced Research
Network


Nanoelectronics

Research Initiative


Energy Research Initiative


Education Alliance


Focus Center Research Program


The SRC has financed 2 major upcoming programs
meant to further knowledge in microelectronics
