The semiconductor industry is heading towards high-volume production at 7nm by the end of 2017, and planning is underway for 5nm and even 3nm processes and fabs. However, the economics of traditional scaling have become crippling, forcing some to pursue alternatives to density scaling. This session addresses the challenges and trade-offs chip makers need to consider as they map out their scaling strategies.
