The date for delivering a plan to implement EC Vice President Neelie Kroes’ plan to win a 20% market share in ICs has passed, but no news of the plan has emerged from Brussels.
Under Kroes’ 10/100/20 plan to revive semiconductor manufacturing in Europe, the mechanics of how to achieve Kroes’ aspiration of 20% semiconductor market share were to be left to industry leaders.
So the European Leaders Group (ELG) was set up last October to work out a plan to implement Kroes’ ambitions. It was due to report on December 16th.
The group consisted of: Ben Verwaayen, formerly of BT and Alcatel, Carlo Bozotti of STM
Reinhard Ploss, CEO of Infineon, Rutger Wijburg of Globalfoundries, Rick Clemmer of NXP
Hubert Lakner of Fraunhofer, Mike Muller of ARM, Peter Wennink of ASML, André-Jacques Auberton-Hervé of SOITEC, Luc van den Hove of Imec, Jean Therme of CEA, Eamonn Sinnott of Intel.
Some of these were known to be against the plan. There were reports that some group members thought that the target should be re-defined to refer to systems sales not chip sales.
The three IDM CEOs, Bozotti, Clemmer and Ploss, were said to be major stand-outs against Kroes’ aspiration. They have no plans to build fabs in Europe and, without them building manufacturing capacity, there is seemingly no way Europe can make 20% of the world’s ICs.
The plan should have been delivered by now but, so far, there is no word on its findings.
