Are We There Yet?

The Road to 7nm is Paved with Predictive Modeling

Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason. (Jerry Seinfeld)

We know what roads will lead us to the 7nm semiconductor node and frankly, they’re not all that scenic. In this week’s Fry Fry, we tackle the trials and tribulations of this tiny titan with David Freid from Coventor. David and I discuss the biggest challenges we will face at this smallest of the small process geometry, how virtual fabrication and predictive modeling can help solve some of our problems, and why the most important question surrounding this new node isn’t being asked: “Should we even go to 7nm?” In this week’s Kickstarter Corner, we check out the coolest new Star Wars campaign to hit the kickstartin’ airwaves: Kyberlight Sabers – The strongest, brightest, and best combat-ready sabers in the galaxy!
