Reducing capacitance

Herb is probably tied up with the interposer workshop at GIT, so I'll jump in - Simon's point was that the world is going to 3D IC, which means using vertical interconnects/Through Silicon Vias to connect stacked chips. Using TSVs decreases line lengths significantly, and this is where the decrease in resistance and capacitance occurs.

shortening interconnects is the rather obvious way but not easy. I was actually waiting for a reply from the author himself since he might have more specific information.

Reducing wire length automatically reduces capacitance.  There may be other ways to influence capacitance, but wire length is the big one.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
