1The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors ITRS Team Membership
2ITRS Global Participation The 2005/2006 ITRS has over participants worldwide.
3ITRS Process Jointly sponsored by five regions of the world Europe, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the U.S.A.International Technology Working Groups (ITWGs) forecast the technology requirements and areas of needed innovation for 15 yearsBased on major technology disciplinesRepresentatives are from each region's domestic working groups (DTWGs):industry, government labs, supplier community, consortia, and academiaSystem Drivers DesignProcess Integration, Devices & Structures Front End ProcessesEmerging Research Devices Emerging Research MaterialsLithography InterconnectFactory Integration Assembly & PackagingTest and Test Equipment MetrologyYield Enhancement Modeling & SimulationEnvironment, Safety & Health RF and Analog/Mixed-signal Techs. for Wireless Communications
5ITRS TeamsInternational Roadmap Committee [IRC] -- each of the five regions send two-three representatives of their ITRS regional sponsor.These executives serve as the overall managers of their working group communities.While this is not an inclusive task list, some of the IRC activities include: setting the policy/guidelines for the ITRS process and information; sponsoring ITRS meetings, [sponsoring includes funding responsibility for these events]; co-authoring the Executive Summary; and reviewing the final draft of the ITRS.They are spokespeople for the ITRS.The IRC members provide the lists of their working groups’ representativesTechnology Working Group [TWG] – team of technologists for a particular technology domain, e.g., Lithography, ESH, Modeling, etc.
6ITRS Teams Domestic [regional] TWG [DTWG] – International TWG [ITWG] – Each of the five regions have related TWGS for the following technologies:System Drivers/Design, Process Integration, Devices, & Structures [PIDS], Test and Test Equipment, RF and Analog/Mixed-signal for Wireless, Emerging Research Devices/Emerging Research Materials [ERD/ERM], Front end Processes [FEP], Lithography, Interconnect, Factory Integration, Assembly & Packaging, Environment, Safety, & Health [ESH], Yield Enhancement, Metrology, and Modeling & Simulation. International TWG [ITWG] –Representatives from a DTWG, two from each regional DTWG are selectedThese ITWG members attend the ITRS ITWG/IRC meetings and conferencesWork in CrossTWG teams and other meetings with their counterparts from the other four regions.
7ITRS Teams - DTWG Management Domestic [regional] TWG [DTWG] – Overall ResponsibilityDTWG management and funding are handled by the DTWG chair or co-chair.MembershipMembers are usually between people per region.DTWGs should have seven voting members [minimum membership number]. The required affiliation composition [very important] is as follows:2- chip manufacturers2- suppliers2- consortia1- research, either government or academiaEach DTWG has a total of seven recognized voting members, with potentially many more expert members.This composition of voting members ensures that the consensus is based on equitable distribution of the industry sectors of chip makers, suppliers, consortia members, and researchers.
8ITRS Teams - DTWG Management Membership [continued]DTWG members accept those who they believe to be representative experts for their technology to be TWG membersThe DTWG may choose to vote on new membersSome DTWGs choose to have "subTWG leaders and chairs for focus groups.Those subTWG leaders supply the DTWG chair/co chair or editorial contact with information regarding their chapter roadmaps.They do not send information onto me except as a courtesy.BudgetDTWG budgets are managed by each DTWG chair for DTWG activities. [The SEMATECH ITRS budget does not fund DTWG activities.]CommunicationsThe DTWG chair or co-chair are responsible for all pass-downs from the ITWG meetings.Membership lists and address lists, as well as the work-in-progress sites on the internet are managed by the DTWG chair or co-chair, usually by their administrative assistant.
9ITRS Teams - DTWG Management MeetingsThe DTWG chair holds a minimum of quarterly meetings among that DTWG [monthly meetings are encouraged] and works directly with the other regional DTWGs’ chairs through tele- or video conferences and .As a suggestion…Many DTWG meetings are held in conjunction with other conferences or meetings where the same people will be, to help with room rental and other meeting costs.Meetings can be sponsored by the DTWG chair's company or organization in a conference facility for that company.
10ITRS DepartmentThe IRC approves ITRS products, process, and schedules; the ITRS manager implements these decisionsITRS process definition and managementResponsible for the project management aspects of the ITRS processITRS publications and public communicationsManages the publication / production of the ITRS documents, archives of all historical ITRS information [from 1992].Fields general ITRS questions, copyright issues, and ITRS use permissionsDirects press to appropriate ITWG/IRC individuals for in-depth ITRS informationITRS WebsitesManages and funds three ITRS websites [public, ISMT member-only, and ITRS secure area]
11ITRS Department ITWG and IRC meetings / ITRS public conferences Manages and funds the summer ITRS meetingsServes as a consultant to the other global ITWG/IRC sponsors for their meetings and ITRS conferencesITWG/IRC Membership SupportITWG membership lists, addresses of the ITWG members and USA DTWG chairs, co-chairs and contact personCollects demographic information from all regions and provides a simple analysis of the composition of the ITRS teams.
