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.
