Now that we have change our name to MonolithIC 3D Inc. we have update our web site and put a lot of interesting information including a very active blog http://www.monolithic3d.com/blog.html. I highly recommend going through it as many of the issues discussed above a re covered in details there.

The 3D chip technology is shaping up very fast and I hope the industry could reap the benefits of this technology in the recent future. To see the semiconductor technology to grow as Moore told, there is necessity of such technologies. What are all the products that could really reap the benefits of this technology?

The a pipe-dream "cool" solution would be to sandwich a thermo-electric material between layers that converts the heat into electricity that cuts power too!

Paraphrasing from "Apocalypse Now", "Oh, the Heat". I'm sure that rational arrangements of layers with respect to the base will help, but heck, the whole point is to cram as much heat-generating circuitry into the smallest area possible. Perhaps it's time to start running coolant through the 3D array? Or shape the 3D arrays as other than apartment houses?

Not sure, but I would think the EDA tools won't need too much of a tweak, since they already deal with multiple layers--just more of them for 3D ICs.

This may have vast application in sapce and defence industry. For them conserving space is very crucial. How about the reliability aspect of these monolithic 3D devices? Will they have new qualification procedure for space application? Also, what will be implications on required EDA design tools?

Anybody who is interested in the perils and progress in true monolithic 3D should check with BeSang, which has been working on these tough engineering tasks for several years now.
