Abstract:

The semiconductor industry is under pressure, thus accelerating the industry evolution from vertical integration to specialization and collaboration. Speed-to-market, function integration, low power, and customer focus are increasingly important. Clustering and collaborative efforts are needed to offset the high costs of new development and are necessary for knowledge fusion and cross-disciplinary research. The US currently lacks a comprehensive plan to fully capitalize on opportunities presented by the new environment and ensure continued leadership. The US needs strategies to retain top intellectual talent, bolster industry-leading RD, set conditions for success within American borders, and secure the supply chain for DoD requirements.
