Impact of Microelectronics — Technical, Economical and Social Aspects

Abstract

Scientists make research, politicians carry responsibility? This is a provocative question. The purpose of this contribution is to improve the necessary information exchange between those who develop microelectronics technology and those who are affected by it. By communicating its various implications in industry, economy and society, the objective of an improved sharing of the function of technological development and responsibility for the consequences can be approached. Aspects of technology itself, especially those of physical limitations that are the subject of companion papers, are excluded from consideration. Extensive use is made of source material presented in “Microelectronics and Society — For Better or For Worse” 1, of a series of public papers edited under the title “Microelectronics, Information, Society”2 and an earlier paper.3
