IEEE IRDS More Moore roadmap for Edge and Cloud Computing Enablement

2021 International Symposium on Roadmapping Devices and Systems


The International Symposium on Roadmapping Devices and Systems (ISRDS) virtual symposium has featured:

  • Read-outs that preview the 2021 International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS)
  • Highlights from the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC 2020) including “what is next for Reversible Computing”, “Large-scale Neuromorphic design principles”, and “Circuit Characterization for quantum processing”.

Two-Day Program : PROGRAM – 2021 ISRDS May 26 and 27

  • Day 1: “2021 IRDS Roadmap Summaries”
  • Day 2: “New Directions for Computing”

As the successor to the ITRS, the IRDS™ topics are a forecast of technology and systems characteristics, needed technologies, and capabilities of the microelectronics and systems industries.  The intent is to focus on academic, manufacturing, supply, and research coordination regarding the development of microelectronic devices and systems.

The goals of the roadmap are as follows:

  1. To identify key trends related to devices, systems, and all related technologies by generating a roadmap with a 15-year horizon
  2. To determine generic devices’ and systems’ needs, challenges, potential solutions, and opportunities for innovation
  3. To encourage related activities worldwide through collaborative events, such as related IEEE conferences and roadmap workshops

The 2020 IRDS Roadmaps have been released:

The SiNANO Institute is one more time well mentionned in the latest IRDS Press Release:

About IRDS

IRDS Mission: Identify the roadmap of electronic industry from devices to systems and from systems to devices.
This initiative focuses on an International Roadmap for Devices and Systems through the work of roadmap teams closely aligned with the advancement of the devices and systems industries, especially for computing applications.
Led by an international roadmap committee – IRC – including the SiNANO Institute, International Focus Teams (IFTs) will collaborate in the development of a roadmap, and engage with other segments of the IEEE, such as Rebooting Computing, and related industry communities, in complementary activities to help ensure alignment and consensus across a range of stakeholders, such as Academia, Consortia, Industry or/and national laboratories.

Link with the SiNANO Institute

IRDS’ Executive Committee is comprised of leaders from five regions of the world: Europe (SiNANO Institute), Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and the U.S.A.

The SiNANO Institute is hence the European representative for IRDS.

Francis Balestra is the European representative in IRC – International Roadmap Committee.

International roadmap efforts directly aligned with the IRDS:

  • NanoElectronics Roadmap for Europe: “Identification and Dissemination” (NEREID) – SiNANO Institute Scientific Coordinator
  • The System Device Roadmap Committee of Japan (SDRJ)
  • ITRS2.0
  • the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI)
  • Sandia National Labs
