I quit reading these articles because they take too long to get through all the pages. A true "list" would all be on one page, and one could choose to see more detail - or not.

Good overall list... how ever, I do take exception to one -3-D printing! The industry (may be in sync with 3D TV's) would love to use the fancy word for many engineers like me have been using as SLA machines (stereolithography). These prototyping machines in manufacturing have been around for decades and have always been the lowest-cost way to make sample parts. But I would argue they remain as play for enterprises by a huge majority than for consumers! Equipments and materials are no where near the price models of Inkjet printers! By the way, regarding some 2012 duds in the list, I would list: 1. NXP's IoT with light bulbs -largely remained as a dreamware for 2012! 2. Plastic electronics ended the year as only slightly removed from hype! 3. NFC -mixed bag in the USA; caught on in EU. 4. Printed electronics -ditto! The explosion as huge growth opportunity yet to materialize! 5. Graphene -still in hype cycle! 6. GPGPU -right on! Winner!! 7. EUV -need I say more, HYPE continues! 8. 40/100Gig Ethernet -catching up BUT not in RJ45!! 9. Mobile OS with Android -right on! Winner!! 10. AMOLEDs -neutral! Some wins in tablets, TV still too expensive! 11. 3DIC's -neutral; many-ongoing designs, some product releases (Samsung's RDRAM with TSV's). Overall, I would give a thumbs up to EE Times. MP Divakar

3D printing is technology which everyone is excited about. Needs to be seen what advancement will we see in 3D printing this year. We are seeing some new versions of 3D printers in on-going CESC exhibition.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
