About STARnet Funding Opportunities
STARnet is a collaborative network of teams at U.S. universities that conduct exploratory research on silicon-based integrated circuits to address gaps and barriers anticipated in the development of certain technologies, as outlined by the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS). The ITRS is a 15-year projection of the semiconductor industry's technology requirements designed to ensure continued advances in the performance of integrated circuits. The roadmap helps identify future barriers to meeting the industry's requirements and guides R&D investment decisions. All research conducted by STARnet will be pre-competitive and use cross-disciplinary, broad-based resources to enhance the transfer of technology from universities to industry. STARnet will target long-range research—eight years and beyond.
