According to the 1998 SIA roadmap [SIA98], integrated circuits (ICs) at the end of this decade will typically have more than 500 million transistors, an integration scale more than one order of magnitude higher than in today’s microelectronics. For the high performance processor segment, even larger integration scales have been predicted, with processor performance reaching 3 million MIPS by the year 2010 [Tech00].
