2 July 2003 Technology acceleration: the change in industry requirements
Author Affiliations +
The technology acceleration of the ITRS Roadmap has many implications on both the semiconductor supplier community and the manufacturers. This work examines the im-pact of technology acceleration on the manufacturers and the resultant supplier impact. This work begins with an overview of the forces in the industry that are driving the accel-eration. Providing an analysis of the drive behind the acceleration, the impact on total production is developed. This acceleration results in more functionality per unit area in a shorter time frame. Based on a constant growth of devices, the technology acceleration reduces the requirements for manufacturing capacity increases. This fact has a direct im-pact on the supplier community. An additional factor is introduced, which is time to market. An analysis of the impact of "winning" the time to market race provides insight into a key industry driver. This work provides an improved understanding of the market forces that drive the semiconductor industry.
