Executives said a variety of 3-D ICs will hit the market in 2014 despite numerous challenges, and CMOS scaling is slowing down but still viable through a 7 nm node. via Chip execs see 20 nm variants, 3-D ICs ahead.
Debate is on whether to go further… is Moore’s law done? Close? What will continue the industry down the Moore’s Law cost/performance curve? 450mm wafers? Wafer size may be a lever, but not one like transistor shrinkage. 3D IC? Possibly. TSMC to offer only one process at 20-nm.20, 3D IC, 450mm, end, Moore's Law, nm, one process, TSMC
