Liquid-crystal displays are quickly becoming the dominant display technology for a wide variety of applications-from mobile appliances such as handsets, PDAs and MP3 players to large-format systems like wide-aspect-ratio high-definition televisions.
Process vs. density in DRAMs
Teardown 7/4/2005 Post a comment
The DRAM marketplace is one of the toughest markets in the semiconductor industry because margins are razor thin, even for the most cost-effective manufacturers. Therefore, DRAM makers must continually find ways to reduce cost while meeting market demands for larger memory densities and higher speeds. The most effective method available is to reduce die size through process shrinks and innovative design techniques such as 6F2 cell design.
