We come full circle. I remember when the PC was released. No heatsink and very low power. Too low in the beginning. It was a constant struggle to get quality power supplies with enough power for our increasing advancing processor technologies. It peaked out at the P4 Extreme series (Extremely hot running). The Hummer of CPUs, fat, power hog, over priced and slow. Today, as green is in full gear and wafers are shrinking, so are the heatsinks and power requirements. Thank goodness. They will solve the 11nm power issue and I predict, laser/optical power will be used for the <10nm wafers, but it won't be cheap and heatsinks may be gone by that time, just like with the IBM original PC.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
