Symposium on innovation in semiconductor memory

National Initiative to accelerate digital revolution

From the era of PC/TV and smartphones, the semiconductor market has entered a new growth phase driven by data centers and GX investments, and its importance is increasing day by day. On the other hand, there are a wide range of issues surrounding the semiconductor industry worldwide, such as stable supply of semiconductors, technological innovation and cost competition, economic friction between the U.S. and China, the situation in Ukraine, and carbon neutrality. Japan is strongly positioned internationally in the field of semiconductor manufacturing equipment and materials, and is expected to build a foundation that will enable it to contribute to the world with semiconductor devices.


What will it take for Japan to lead the world? Memory semiconductors are as critical to the digital economy as logic semiconductors, which of course boost the overall semiconductor industry. To promote Japan's position, the idea of a “Memory Core” is expected to be a driver. This symposium will discuss the overall theory of what Japan should work on toward the integration of logic and memory and the shift from the "CPU Core" to the “Memory Core" era.
