Paper Abstract

We base our considerations on our previous analyses of microlithography costs, semiconductor industry, and the needs in design/equipment/process infrastructure. We identify and describe two major investment trends, which seem promising for semiconductor industry. First, into true Design-For-Manufacturing platforms and integration; and second, into Next Generation Computing (atom and molecular-based, bio- and DNA=based; some of it - combined with silicon platform and technology, such as neuroelectronic engineering).
