Déjà Vu All Over Again

Trailblazers, followers, and stragglers…semiconductor companies have usually always sorted themselves out along these lines. At 20nm, though ,we’re beginning to see a shift in these classifications that is affecting both technology node adoption and market strategy. Only a few companies are moving to nodes at 20nm and below, while many of the typical followers have decided to stay at 28nm for the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, those in the rear of the march to tomorrow have, in many cases, decided to create market differentiation at the older node by adding complexity and functionality to existing designs. How are these changes affecting the IC design market market? Christen Decoin explains in his latest article on EDN.

About Shelly Stalnaker

Shelly StalnakerI believe in the well-written sentence, the eye-catching title, and the satisfaction of hearing someone say, “Now I get it.” I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing the use of the third person and passive tense in technical writing. I believe a writer can explain and entertain at the same time, and I believe that everyone, even in the business world, has a story to tell. Visit Foundry Solutions
