Are you serious ? You get the same benefits that its been bringing for 40 years --- lower cost per IC, lower power & higher performance. Intel keeps doing it for these reasons as do their competitors. And if Intel's competition didn't do it, besides not lowering costs & increasing performance, they would fall further & further behind Intel and lose more & more market share.

Due to growth of product complexity, the process shrink is necessary. However, more efforts should spend on process, IP and EDA tool joint development, especially for 14nm finfet technology. For finfet technology, the layout geometry is changed, more unknown layout dependent effects (LDE) appear. The foundry should find experienced engineers to work on this areas for yield (wafer & parametric yield) improvement.

One could ask what the overall benefit of this continuous miniaturization when we have not managed the process issues in larger feature sizes.

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.
