What Is An Integrated Circuit?

In our modern world, just about everything is woven together by electronics. From microwaves to satellites, electronics-powered devices are infused into our every waking moment. Today, even our sleep includes digital acoustics, haptics, and analytics. But while the systems that light, connect, and move our lives can vary greatly, nearly every electronic device has one or more of the same fundam... » read more

Mitigating Electromigration In Chip Design

From smartphones to laptops, we use a variety of devices every day that rely on integrated circuits (ICs), or chips, to function. These chips are made up of thousands of transistors and interconnects, which transmit electrical signals from one part of the chip to another. But as demand for speed and complexity forces more energy through ever-smaller devices, this concentrated current flow can t... » read more

3D-IC Design: An Innovative Approach To Chip Integration

Advancements in technology have led to the development of increasingly complex and densely integrated circuits (ICs). To keep up with the ever-growing demand for high-performance and power-efficient devices, the industry has shifted toward 3D-IC design. 3D-ICs have many applications in a wide range of industries, including consumer electronics, telecommunications, computing, and automotive.
