Introduction
1010608 IntroductionThe evolution of integrated circuit (IC) fabrication techniques is a unique fact in the history of modern industry. There have been steady improvements in terms of speed, density and cost for more than 30 years. In this chapter, we present some information illustrating the technology scale down.
General Trends Inside general purpose electronics systems such as personal computers or cellular phones, we may find numerous integrated circuits (IC), placed together with discrete components on a printed circuit board (PCB), as shown in Figure 1.1. The integrated circuits appearing in this figu…
