Yogi Berra said, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.” With all the different choices for future technology nodes, do we need to choose one direction at the fork or should we pursue more than one path? The industry faces many difficult choices ahead to keep scaling (a la Moore and Dennard) alive beyond 14nm, among them EUV, 450mm, 3D, T-FET, nanowires, etc. Major changes in equipment, materials, structures, and fundamental approaches (e.g., monolithic 3D) are all on the table. This panel will discuss the alternatives from foundry, equipment, design, and EDA perspectives.
