Yes 16 node is really 20 node transistor density (both transistor pitch and metal pitch are same as 20) at higher wafer cost.
It makes no sense. Cost per transistor goes up (Moore's law goes backward)
Plus if that was not bad enough it is too costly to build and validate design IP for 2 nodes with the same transistor density.
This is why Altera, Cisco, Micro Semi and i hear likely another another left for intel. Intel''s 14 nm will have a real 14nm metal system and a real 14nm transistor density
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.
