International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors ITRS

The “International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors”, initiated in the US, is sponsored by the five leading chip manufacturing regions in the world: Europe, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the United States. It consists of 15 working groups in which scientists from different countries meet regularly (e.g. each year during Semicon West in San Francisco, USA) to work on ensuring cost-effective advancements in the performance of the integrated circuit and the products that employ such devices.
