Semiconductor Research Corp. (SRC), a university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, recently announced that Applied Materials Inc. has joined the consortium's community of 23 companies and partners plus 100 universities worldwide.

"As the leading chip equipment company, Applied Materials is one of the semiconductor industry's major technology innovators and a key contributor to the continuing advance of Moore's Law," said Larry Sumney, CEO and president of the SRC, in a statement. "The addition of Applied provides a strategic expansion of SRC's ecosystem and enhances the industry's ability to continue to move university research toward commercial application."

Working with SRC members, Applied Materials will take a lead role in collaborating on enhancements to the research agenda for materials and processes associated with semiconductor manufacturing. Applied joined other SRC members last week in planning the next five years of research by consortium members for the advancement of the chip industry.

"The industry's ability to sustain Moore's Law through its technology roadmap depends on extensive collaboration in selecting and supporting the most promising research directions," commented Applied Materials CTO Mark Pinto. "The SRC has a uniquely valuable and proven model for research and collaboration between industry and academia that will help ensure continued innovation in an era requiring many new materials and technologies."
