"Europe must increase chip R&D spend"

The higher cost of microelectronics R&D as it goes further into nanometre dimensions, mandates a Europe which is committed to increasing its investment in chip R&D, according to Arthur van der Poel, chairman of the pan-European microelectronics R&D programme MEDEA+.
Van der Poel pointed out that, in the last decade, packing density of transistors on ICs has increased 100 times; CPU processing in terms of $ per MIPS, has decreased a thousand times; cost of HDD storage has decreased one thousand times; network bandwidth has increased a thousand-fold, and the cost of bandwidth in terms of bit/s per km has decreased by 30 times.
