Introducing MAPT

This Interim Report of the MAPT Roadmap has been published to assist with the planning and execution of CHIPS Act initiatives. It provides an early version of the MAPT Roadmap Chapters, with items still under development. The team is now working towards an integrated final version with complete content, uniform style, and high-quality graphics. We seek feedback from the broader audience that can help to improve our Final Report (due October 31, 2023).

Microelectronics and Advanced Packaging Technologies (MAPT) is a critical multidisciplinary field with the potential to transform the design and manufacture of future microchips. These advances build upon breakthroughs in advanced packaging, 3D monolithic and 2.5D/3D heterogeneous integration, electronic design automation, nanoscale manufacturing, and energy-efficient computing. The Semiconductor Research Corporation 2030 Decadal Plan for Semiconductors identified five seismic shifts to attack through innovative MAPT research and development:

Five Seismic Shifts That Will Define The Future of Semiconductors and ICT

The MAPT Technical Committee has identified the above as key drivers of MAPT innovation and have begun planning research in these areas. Advanced packaging is key to meeting the needs in these areas; the limits of transistor scaling will require assembling separately manufactured components to create advanced Systems in Package or SiPs. A critical contribution of this road mapping effort is to assure future design, development, and manufacturing of heterogeneously integrated SiPs in the US.

  • We need to channel more funds to research and add to the supply and quality of degreed professional people.

  • Attracting and retaining the world’s best STEM talent is an advantage that is America’s to lose. And we are not going to let that happen.
    Gina Raimondo
  • Working together, we can reinvest in semiconductor innovators and technologies, building upon our strengths to improve both economic and national security
