When Simple IC Scaling Died and the Semiconductor Technology Crisis Arrived

Summary : In 2003, Bernie Meyerson, CTO at IBM's Microelectronics Division, shocked the world, exclaiming, “Scaling is dead!” In this historic video, he describes how he saw the end simple lithographic scaling of integrated circuits coming and the R&D crisis that would ensue in the semiconductor industry. Bernie talks from a perspective of bringing up 65nm ICs in wafer fab production and process technology research on 45nm. Semiconductor History being made in the 2000’s: a historic video from 2003.
