Fostering innovation and assuring manufacturability through collaboration are the keys to the future prosperity of the semiconductor industry. To survive and prosper, all of us must participate in broad collaborations that maximize R&D efficiencies and spread out the ever‐rising costs of technical research and development. New and exciting collaborations are taking place throughout the industry as organizations — chipmakers, suppliers, universities, governments, consortia — experiment with new ways of cooperating with one another to achieve economies of scale and to serve the industry at large. New initiatives at SEMATECH, including new subsidiaries and partnerships with regional governments, offer the kind of flexibility that we believe industry participants must demonstrate in order to stay competitive in the 21st century. This article outlines several new approaches to the challenges of innovation, manufacturability, and collaboration.
