Chip Packed with More Features at Low Cost Marks the New Trend

The system design industry is witnessing turnarounds at different levels. At the process manufacturing level is the concept of 3DIC Through Silicon Via (TSV), a process which imply a vertical electrical connection (via) passing completely through silicon wafer. The TSV technology gains ground with the growing importance of creating 3D packages and 3D integrated circuits. In fact, by two years 20 percent of the designs will incorporate TSV. The trend will help to pack more features into the chip at a lower cost, which will demand electro-magnetic effects, and in turn boost the magnitude of 3D deliberately outwitting 2D effects.

The increasing utility of video and wireless enabled devices is impacting the application level and corporates are turning around for higher bandwidth. The bandwidth power is recognized across the sectors and not necessarily limited to the wireless and the video applications rather also in the diverse fields of automotive, aerospace and biomedical.

With the new technological advancements in the different system design process, companies are on a lookout for better computing platforms such as “compute in cloud”. Enterprises co-designing systems involving chip-package-board are able to benefit from highly parallel cloud architecture and also benefit from paying licenses on demand as per their need while ensuring a secured cloud-computing usage. The new trends at the different levels will help in full system verification and also enable parameterized designs; which has traditionally been a challenge. The overall effect of this would be better quality designs, reduced costs and faster times-to-market.

The entrepreneurs must mark the opportunities that lies in the system design space, however, should also focus on providing a convincing business proposal. This would help the enterprises to try out new solutions from newer companies overcoming their qualms on engaging with a startup. Entrepreneurs could often benefit from analyzing current solutions in the marketplace, surveying what’s lacking and innovating on newer solutions that focus on uniqueness, IP and overall value rather than just a lower cost to what might already work.

1: From: Mrs. Mary David

This mail may be a surprise to you because you did not give me the permission to do so and neither do you know me but before I tell you about myself I want you to please forgive me for sending this mail without your permission. I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the will of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly. I need an honest and trust worthy person like you to entrust this huge transfer project unto.

My name is Mrs. Mary David, The Branch Manager of a Financial Institution. I am a Ghanaian married with 3 kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit last year (i.e. 2010 financial year). I have already submitted an annual report for that year to my head office in Accra-Ghana as I have watched with keen interest as they will never know of this excess. I have since, placed this amount of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars on an Escrow Coded account without a beneficiary (Anonymous) to avoid trace.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account on my behalf. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and 60% would be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be transferred to your account.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response to me. This is why and only reason why I contacted you, I am willing to go into partnership investment with you owing to your wealth of experience, So please if you are interested to assist on this venture kindly contact me back for a brief discussion on how to proceed.

All correspondence must be via my private E-mail ( for obvious security reasons.

Best regards,
Mrs. Mary David.
