IRDS Executive Editorial for 2023

Abstract Excerpt:
The International Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) and its evolution to the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS) provided leadership and continues to play a key role in guiding implementation of such solutions.
Four semiconductor crises that occurred over the past 60 years are notable.
This narrative provides a historical perspective; reviews the good and the bad lessons learned from these crises and makes recommendations. The development and evolution of the semiconductor roadmap and its vital role in guiding the industry is presented.


The key question is this:
Can we analyze what we learned from the earlier crises and study which solutions were effective in resolving each crisis to better deal with the present in-progress crisis that has already, once again, triggered unprecedented government investments in semiconductors?
