||Needs and Objectives
Objectives: Cooperative research between all basic technologies
of silicon LSIs at the worldfs top level. Main goal is the evolutionary
development of new future main-stream technology for: the unification
of system, circuit, device-modeling and device-fabrication research;
wireless and optical interconnections; 3D transistors as well as
systems with high-level recognition and learning capabilities.
Not only technology advancements, but also industrial promotion and a contribution
to the information society will be made by COE formation.
Highly-capable human resources will be brought up by the practical education
in research and development.
Needs: For more than 10 years, silicon integration technologies will remain the
main stream of the industries. For taking the leadership in this field, research
for an evolutionary technology development is necessary.
By such a broad visionary research, training practical and well reflecting specialists
and leaders is strongly required.
