SRC's Board of Directors holds the first-ever Board retreat, developing a plan to minimize research cycle time and improve technology transfer; a key decision is to create an electronically distributed SRC Research Catalog.


  • SRC works closely with the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), SEMATECH and other industry and government leaders to update the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors; by defining industry needs for the next 15 years, the updated Roadmap helps guide investment decisions, decrease gaps in technology efforts, and coordinate national research and development efforts.
  • More than $29 million in research contracts at 49 major North American universities and research institutions are funded and managed.
  • Research programs result in 21 new patents.
  • SRC supports 855 students at 49 universities; SRC-sponsored researchers account for about 10 percent of all electrical and computer engineering Ph.D.'s granted each year.
For specific research areas and results, please see this year's annual report. »
