I always liked Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick" :-)

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

How many times does one have to explain to you that 14nm/16nm FinFet applies to 20nm design rules? How does it feel being thick as a brick?

"16-nm FinFET test chips in 2013 and first products in 2014" More integration than Moore's 18 month cycle. Mobile supercomputer systems on a chip coming...

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
