Doesn't look like they got anything at 20nm working above 3ghz, no gen2+ pcie or hdmi. Got to wonder what sort of pll their making, also. Guess they got three more months to actually sell a 20nm this year. BTW, no talk of yield?
Wait for carbon tubes to redesign this roadmap. This obsession with smaller feature size is not a roadmap for long haul, it is a marketing message to show innovation. I do not see that value - moving from 22nm to 16nm. I know it was a big deal from 3.3um to 90nm
20nm is about 24% more expensive per unit area and with 1.9x more die gives a 35% cost reduction. The problem is at 16nm where the 1.05x more die than 20nm will not offest the increased cost per unit area and the cost per die will go up.
A Book For All Reasons Bernard Cole1 Comment Robert Oshana's recent book "Software Engineering for Embedded Systems (Newnes/Elsevier)," written and edited with Mark Kraeling, is a 'book for all reasons.' At almost 1,200 pages, it ...
