On 5 November 2009

SIPA holds the Executive Panel Discussion

Entitled “Business and Technical Mutual Opportunities among Interesting Parties VS Dr. Ralph K. CAVIN III,

the Chief Scientist from SRC- Semiconductor Research Corporation”

Program Hosted by SIPA- SoftWare Industry Promotion Agency 

Summarized Conclusion Reported by Dr. Piyawut SRICHAIKUL

 1. Introduction:


1.1 Bringing together the Conference: Dr. R. K. CAVIN III, an IEEE Fellow& SRC- Semiconductor Research Corporation’s Chief Scientist, has engaged technical advisory functions to Singapore’s A*STAR for about six consecutive years. Dr. CAVIN is due to receive an appreciation reward from Singapore’s President on 2 November 2009. Dr. RoongRuang LIMCHOOPATIPA, SIPA- SoftWare Industry Promotion Agency’s CEO, then recognized the opportunity that Dr. CAVIN could be a valuable support on Computer SoftWare& Communication Technology in various aspects to Thailand. SIPA then assisted in hosting a few conference activities by Dr. CAVIN on 5 November 2009, ie.:


Morning Session: Introduction Speech on “SRC- Semiconductor Research Corp. Structure,” hosted by SIPA& FTI- Federation of the Thai Industry’s EETI- Electrical, Electronics, & TeleCommunication Industry Association


Afternoon Session: Technical Research Seminar on the “limits of scaling of electron devices and the implications of these scaling limits on possible information system performance,” hosted by NECTEC- National Electronics and Computer Technology Centre.


Evening Session: Executive Panel Discussion on business and technical mutual opportunities between SRC& Thailand in general entitled “Collaboration Opportunity between SRC& Thailand’s Academic and Government Offices.”


1.2 Result of the Conference: The day session encountered with some 78participants, eg.: from EIT- Engineering Institute of Thailand under his Majesty the King’s Patronage and I- Tree Creation Co., Ltd. The targeted participants was 80.






Participants from EIT, from left to right: Dr. Prasong PRANEETPOLGRANG, Dr. Chavalit THISAYAKORN, Dr. R. K. CAVIN III, Khun KoomChoke BIYEAM, Khun KiitiThep KARNJANAWADEE, Khun SiriChote SINGSA, & Dr. Pinit KARNJANASEVEE






1.3 Name List of the Participants to the Evening Executive Panel Discussion: After the appreciation to SRC’s Corporate Structure and the technical research work from Dr. CAVIN in during the day, an evening discussion panel has been hosted by SIPA to initiate potential of Collaboration Opportunity between SRC& Thailand’s Academic and Government Offices. Ten executives from relevance software concerned organizations together with Dr. CAVIN have gathered to discuss potential of the Collaboration Opportunity. Name list of participants may be tabulated as below:





SRC: Prof. Ralph CAVIN III


NECTEC: Dr. Piyawut SEECHAIKUL, Mr. Chumnarn PANYASO, and Dr. Nipapan KLANGERN






FTI: Dr. Chieanchuang KULYANAMITR


IWB- SiamTec Co., Ltd.: Dr. Chavalit THISAYAKORN& Khun Suvalai KRUAPAIBOONKUL


Engineering Institute of Thailand: Khun Sumeth URKSORNRAKITTI


Sripatum University: Assistant Professor Jarnjai BHURIPANYO






2. Result of the Evening Executive Panel Discussion on the Agenda of the Collaboration Opportunity:




2.1 Collaboration modes:


Research funding through SRC: is available to anyone, highly competitive process, solicitation of research, http://www.src.org


Govt- SRC collaboration: matching program of mutual benefit to industry and society, negotiated ratio, has only been done in US but there is no restriction to others.


Example: NSF- SRC on environmentally benign semiconductor manufacturing. DARPA- SRC


Fund Grant Condition: Industry must always be involved in SRC research




2.2 SRC interests of collaboration in the region (SE Asia):




(a) Expanding R& D outside US




(b) Possible starting approaches:


- Joint study/ forum on future semiconductor research (in the region?) ie.: for 2020- International conference in the region


- Advisory board ie. Similarly to Dr. Cavin’s work with Singapore A*STAR's IME




(c) Possible counter proposed/ Take up issues:


- Create Int'l advisory board for institutions: NECTEC, SIPA, FTI


- Small projects (embedded, substrate electronics): FTI


- Joint study: SIPA
