    Today Micron announced that it is shipping 2GB Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) samples. The HMC is actually 5 stacked die connected with through-silicon-vias (TSVs). The bottom die is a logic chip and is actually manufactured for Micron in an IBM 32nm process (and doesn't have any TSVs). The other 4 die are 4Gb DRAM die manufactured by Micron themselves with TSVs ...

    It is beginning to look as if 28nm transistors, which are the cheapest per million gates compared to any earlier process such as 45nm, may also be the cheapest per million gates compared to any later process such as 20nm.

    What we know so far: FinFET seems to be difficult technology because of the 3D structure and so the novel manufacturing required but seems to be stable once ...

    Last week I heard about the Indian Cabinet approving the proposal for setting up of two Fabs in India. One led by IBM, Tower Jazz and JP Associates (an Indian business house), and the other led by HSMC (Hindustan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.), ST Microelectronics and Silterra. Indian Semiconductor community including IESA (India Electronics and Semiconductor Association) has welcomed the step; ...

    Despite the relative success of their latest smartphone, iPhone15s, the Cupertino firm had never been able to renew with the success of legendary iPhone5s, launched ten years ago, in 2011. As of today, we don’t know if Microsoft will keep iPhone and iPad product lines, or decide to provide these with a lethal injection…

    One of the benefits of blogging is that you put a stake in the ground to look back on and see how how things have changed over the years. You can also keep a win/loss record of your opinions, observations, and experiences. Last year I posted the “SemiWiki Analytics Exposed 2012” blog so here is a follow-up to that.

    The Semiconductor Wiki Project, the premier semiconductor collaboration site, is a growing online community of professionals involved with the semiconductor design and manufacturing ecosystem. Since going online January 1st, 2011
