Device Scaling Good news Smaller devices mean faster devices Smaller devices can be lower power if operating voltages also get smaller Bad news Time for current to move through metal interconnects is getting longer as devices get smaller Thinner gate oxide means leakage and more off-state power consumption d V G V D V=0
