Hello FePiNaMi, You might have missed the fact that the Viewpoint ”IC technology moves in multiple directions” was written 3 years ago, right after the 2008 market meltdown. At that time most semi companies were understandably hesitant to venture off into an expensive deployment in the next technology node. Three years later and today all the industry talk is about shortage of capacity at 28nm... today Sagantec serves customers of both types: those that early on migrate to the next node and those who are more interested in cost reduction and alternate sourcing.

The CEO of Sagantec expresses first a view in "Viewpoint:IC technology moves in multiple directions" about companies making ICs and developing IP in nodes at 90 nm and above and not migrating to lower nodes, but then ends up buying a company specializing in 20nm EDA tools himself! Adds special meaning to the phrase "take it with a pinch of salt" !!

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
