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.

So what is being done to minimize interconnect Capacitance ? Who is doing it ?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
