#333 IEDM 2015

As usual in December (e.g. see blogs #312 and #266) comes the time to comment on the trends that have emerged from the papers presented during the annual International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM). The 2015 edition of IEDM was a memorable one because after 60 years of alternating between Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, starting in with 2016 edition, IEDM will be held solely in  the Bay Area.  


 To me, “3D” and “flexible” were on top of the list of keywords defining this year’s IEDM. The former was tossed around not only in the reference to transistors architecture (FinFETs specifically), but also in the context of 3D integration. The latter, was used mainly in reference to the flexible substrates in display technology, wearable electronics and photonics, etc. It seems to me that it won’t be long before the term “3D flexible” will emerge as a single key word.
