Hard to consider a boon to scaling, with the airgap being an extra space, so to speak.

Yes, that's right. I was at DEC in the late '80s and we were evaluating whether or not to use 4K GaAs Srams from GigaBit Logic in a new mainframe being designed. They used air bridges in their process to reduce the line capacitance.

Airgaps aren't really new. TriQuint used air gaps in their GaAs process in the mid 90's. It not at the scale Intel is talking about, but the structure was an airgap.

Nice to see new technology to further improve the process with smaller geometry.

Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
