Semiconductor Research Corporation

Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) is a non-profit consortium that focuses on semiconductor technology and education and workforce development. The SRC Decadal Plan for Semiconductors is a long-term research roadmap that outlines the key research challenges and opportunities for the semiconductor industry over the next 10 years and beyond. The Decadal Plan is developed by SRC in collaboration with leading researchers, industry experts, and government agencies. It identifies the most pressing technological challenges and opportunities for the semiconductor industry and sets research priorities to address them. The plan covers a wide range of topics, including materials science, device physics, process technology, design, and manufacturing.

The SRC Decadal Plan for Semiconductors and the Microelectronics Advanced Packaging Technology (MAPT) roadmap both focus on the advancement of semiconductor technology. However, they have different areas of focus and different levels of granularity.

The SRC Decadal Plan focuses on the long-term research challenges and opportunities for the semiconductor industry, covering a wide range of topics, including materials science, device physics, process technology, design, and manufacturing. The MAPT roadmap, on the other hand, is specifically focused on microelectronics advanced packaging. It outlines the key technical challenges, research needs, and development opportunities in the area of advanced packaging for microelectronics, including package design, interconnect technology, and manufacturing processes.

Both the SRC Decadal Plan and the MAPT roadmap play an important role in guiding research efforts and investment towards critical areas of technology development. They are developed through a collaborative process involving industry, government, and academic experts, and are used by researchers, industry leaders, and government agencies as reference documents for their investment and technology development strategies.
