Why the Technology Road Maps for the Semiconductor Industry Will Be Different
Dr. Handel Jones
A key stimulant to the growth of the semioconductor industry has been the ability to predictably reduce cost per transistor. This pattern will be broken in the near future, with major implications for the semiconductor companies, their suppliers, and customers.
Cost data will be provided to support the new operating structure of the semiconductor industry and the resulting postponement of migration to smaller feature dimensions.
Inputs will be provided on the impact to future spending patterns on increasing wafer capacity and different options for the supply chain.
