IEEE has announced the next milestone phase in the development of the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS), an IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Industry Connections (IC) Program sponsored by the IEEE Rebooting Computing (IEEE RC) Initiative with the launch of a series of nine white papers that reinforce the initiative’s core mission and vision for the future of the computing industry. The white papers also identify industry challenges and solutions that guide and support future roadmaps created by IRDS [read more...]
The series of white papers delivers the starting framework of the IRDS roadmap - and through the sponsorship of IEEE RC—will inform the various roadmap teams in the broader task of mapping the devices’ and systems’ ecosystem:
- Applications Benchmarking
- More Moore
- Beyond CMOS (Emerging Research Devices)
- Outside System Connectivity
- Factory Integration
- Environment, Safety, and Health
- Yield Enhancement
- System and Architecture
The IRDS leadership team hosted a winter workshop and kick-off meeting at the Georgia Institute of Technology on 1-2 December 2016. Key discoveries from the workshop included the international focus teams’ plans and focus topics for the 2017 roadmap, top-level needs and challenges, and linkages among the teams. Additionally, the IRDS leadership invited presentations from the European and Japanese roadmap initiatives. This resulted in the 2017 IRDS global membership expanding to include team members from the “NanoElectronics Roadmap for Europe: Identification and Dissemination” (NEREID) sponsored by the European Semiconductor Industry Association (ESIA), and the “Systems and Design Roadmap of Japan” (SDRJ) sponsored by the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP).
The IRDS team and its supporters will convene 1-3 April 2017 in Monterey, California, for the Spring IRDS Workshop, which is part of the 2017 IEEE International Reliability Physics Symposium (IRPS). The team will meet again for the Fall IRDS Conference in partnership with the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC) scheduled for 6-7 November 2017 in Washington, D.C. More information on both events can be found here.
IEEE RC is a program of IEEE Future Directions, designed to develop and share educational tools, events, and content for emerging technologies [read more...]
