As recently reported, in an effort to initiate resurgence of the U.S. electronics industry, some $500-$800 million will be invested in post-Moore's Law technologies.
- Capability of > 50X the performance at power when compared with 7nm 2D CMOS technology.
- …” This is a paradigm shift for the computer industry and to high-tech world as normal scaling would provide as 3x at best, as indicated by the following well known chart:
3D integration is considered expensive and monolithic 3D is considered extremely challenging requiring high technology, investment, and major changes to the foundry process. In an interesting entanglement, the S3S 2017 program includes a paper by us, MonolithIC 3D Inc., in which we will present a monolithic 3D technology that is low cost and ready to be rapidly deployed using the current transistor processes. In that talk we will also describe how such an integration technology could be used to improve performance and reduce power and cost of most computer systems, suggestive of a 1,000x total system benefit. I hope to see you there to talk further about this upcoming disruptive change.
