Semiconductor Research Corporation

Semiconductor Research Corporation was the chip industry's first research consortium. A non-profit founded in 1982 and based in North Carolina, USA, SRC networks with more than 100 universities globally. The consortium manages a broad program of basic and applied university research on semiconductors on behalf of its members.

SRC has three subsidiaries -- Global Research Corporation (GRC) that drives near-term materials, metrology and patterning progress, Focus Center Research Programs (FCRP) that support future generations of IC requirements, and Nanoelectronics Research Initiative (NRI) that is responsible for determining the post-CMOS information element by 2020.

Leveraging their participation, the member companies direct and receive early access to the research results. Members also cultivate early interaction with the thousands of students who collaborate in the work. These companies are currently members of the SRC:

  • Advanced Micro Devices
  • Applied Materials
  • Axcelis Technologies
  • Cadence Design Systems
  • Freescale Semiconductor
  • Hewlett-Packard
  • IBM
  • Intel
  • LSI Logic
  • Mentor Graphics
  • Novellus Systems
  • Rohm and Haas Electronic Materials
  • Texas Instruments
  • Tokyo Electron Limited
