Si Technology: Complexity Increasing Exponentially
Roadmap Trends: Summary More Speed per processors More memory integration More processors per core More transistors per processor. More complex manufacturing. Larger wafers Narrower circuits. The boundaries of physical science are the perennial challenge.

Processor packaging – The problem with passives! Passive devices move classification outside HS 8542 Passive devices move classification outside HS 8542
The problem with passives. Integrated Passives (on silicon) –passive components on silicon, created in the mass to all intents and purposes indivisible. –Combined in multichip forms with other active ICs ALTERNATIVE TECHNOLOGY –TO CERAMIC / OTHER FORMS –SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN SIZE. –DRIVES FURTHER MINIATURISATION –All products of the semiconductor industry. BUT NOT ACCORDING TO THE CURRENT H.S.

Summary Miniaturising –Micron-scale to nano-scale. Functionalising. –Reduced size enables more functions in less space (all on silicon) –More integration / more complexity. Converging. (computing and comunications) –Developers put more optimum functionality for multiple application.
The Challenge The HS is unable to cope with the advance of technology. The problem is NOW! –All computing devices communicate –All communication devices compute –All enabled by silicon. Silicon circuitry and high density packaging serve: –energy conservation –Miniaturisation –Complex multifunctionality. The current HS should not be a limiter to ITA expansion.
