The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors

Maurice Wilkes

Computer Lab.

We are approaching the physical limits to continued shrinkage of integrated circuits. The Semiconductor Roadmap has since the 1990s provided the business plan for the development, at the precompetitive level, of semiconductor technology and foundry equipment. It has been at the root of the remarkable developments that have taken place in silicon integrated circuits. This is a good time to survey the way the Roadmap has worked in the past and to ask what lessons, if any, can be learned from it , and applied more generally in the financing and organization of industrial research.
