Some embedded designers bristle at the mention of 3DIC, since normally they put logic, memory, etc on same chip. These guys won't redesign for 3DIC overnight!

They'll change their minds when they see how 3D-ICs can simplify their designs. DRAM is much smaller when it's not embedded; it also has less leakage. Without embedded DRAM, the logic can be tighter & faster. It's a win-win for any SOC designer who's willing to think outside the plane.
