By making things smaller, everything gets better
simultaneously. There is little need for trade-offs.
The speed of our products goes up, the power
consumption goes down, system reliability, as
we put more of the system on a chip, improves
by leaps and bounds, but especially the cost of
doing thing electronically drops as a result of the

. . . I have no idea what will happen beyond 0.18 microns.
In fact, I still have trouble believing we are going to be
comfortable at 0.18 microns using conventional optical
systems. Beyond this level, I do not see any way that
conventional optics carries us any further. Of course,
some of us said this...
